Potager 101!

Good news! Angela at Parisienne Farmgirl is starting a Potager 101 Series in February - just in time to chase all the winter blues away! 

Hmmm... what is a potager, you say? 

Why, my favorite type of kitchen garden, of couse! Combining both edible and ornamental plants, a potager is utilitarian in nature (influenced by the kitchen beds of England), but designed with beauty in mind (inspired by the lovely compositions of French gardens). For some pretty pictures, check out my post, Potager Gardens.

For seasoned garderners and newbees alike, she'll cover recommended reading, garden design, seed selection, starting seeds, transplanting, pest control, and more! So if you're longing for healthier food but beauty is what inspires you, now is the time to get your game on and visit Angela so you don't miss a thing!

I'm so there!
