Text, Sow and Grow

Are you all fired up and itching to plant your spring veggie garden? Still stumped on what to order or how to plant your rows? Whether you are new to this veggie craze or you’ve dabbled with this gardening thing for a while, here is a great little resource for those mobile web tool fanatics. If you have a zip code and text messaging, you may want to experiment with the new Burpee Garden Coach™. Sounds like this tool can provide you with everything you need to stay on top of the gardening season. All you have to do is text your U.S. zip code to 80998 and you get introduced to your very own garden coach. Now I haven’t tried it out and I don’t text message so this tool isn’t for me. For any of you text-no-geeks, receiving ‘timely garden advice, planting instructions, harvest tips and recipes’ sounds like a slick feature to trial during the upcoming growing season. You even get local weather, which any good farmer must follow! For those more like me, you may want to visit and get your free ‘Garden Fresh’ brochure. This glossy piece showed up unannounced in my mailbox and it gets a ‘thumbs up’. No seeds, no products, just common sense information for anyone looking to dabble in this home garden thing. If you haven’t quite realized why you should plant a few edibles in your abode, J.C. Loudoun gives us humble food for thought. “For all things produced in a garden, whether of salads or fruits, a poor man will eat better that has one of his own, than a rich man that has none.”
