Spring has Sprung in the Garden of Good & Evils

It is mid-April in the Garden of Good and Evils. When will there ever be enough to time to get everything done?

The garden tasks this spring can be summed up in two words: HAPPY FROG.


No, not that kind of frog. I found this little dude at work. I think he is waving, “hi pal!”.


This kind. The kind in a bag.


No sillies. The bags isn’t full of frogs or frog parts, but good, amazing soil amendments including bat guano and earthworm castings. Read about FoxFarm Happy Frog products. As I’ve mentioned before, I garden on a budget. For me, 3 cubic feet at $18 is quite an expense. I know the product is quality and the Happy Frog potting soil I started with in March has already produced good results with my early garden plantings.


In this bed, I have added Happy Frog to fill in the holes of the concrete blocks. I then planted marigolds and squash seed. Inside the bed, the Happy Frog will provide nourishment for my blackberries and garlic. There was no odor. It felt great in my hands too. If your local garden center doesn’t carry this product, make a request, as I did. You might be surprised to find a nice store manger who will order it for you. Especially if you need several bags. I purchased 8 bags of the soil conditioner. I could probably use more, but between the Happy Frog potting soil, soil conditioner and a truckload of pine straw mulch delivered in the last few weeks, I’m up about $500. In other words, I’m not gonna press my husband for more. 🙂

In the end, you get what you pay for.
