3 Garden Options vs. 3 Garden Myths

Do you want to plant a #Covid #Victory #Garden but do not know how or where to start? 

There are typically three options:

Option #1 – Take a shovel to your planting area, throw some seeds or potted veggies in the ground, apply fertilizer, water, and hope for the best.

Option #2 – Read an extraordinary amount of books and articles and even perhaps enroll in some online or post-Covid in-person classes, and wait until next year to spring into gardening action.

Option #3 – Hire an edible landscape ann/or gardening specialist, like Yummy Tummy Farms to teach, coach, train, and/or install an edible landscape for you. Have Yummy Tummy Farms manage your edible landscape while you eat locally, enjoy flavors that will blow-your-mind, and you can brag to your friends and take most all the credit for being brilliant.  


Option #1 vs. Myth #1 – Option #1 typically follows this cycle because myth #1 follows as gardening is easy and I can do it all by myself. For example, a Backyard Gardener plants the year 1 garden and has great results and feels great. A Backyard Gardener plants year 2 garden and fails miserably, gets frustrated, gives up, and rationalizes that buying fruits and veggies from Mega-Mart is not so bad after all.

Option #2 vs. Myth #2 – Option #2 typically is never realized because of the time, effort, and energy it takes to become an expert in edible landscapes and/or gardening. Option #2 is an admirable pursuit. Myth #2 over-estimates the resolve of the average person to study, retain, and execute the body of acquired knowledge well. Question: Who has time to eat, sleep, work, raise a family, and become an expert at planning and managing edible landscapes past year 1? Answer: almost nobody.

Option # 3 vs. Myth #3 – This is by far and away the best option for ramping up your edible landscape quickly while learning about edible landscapes while you eat like royalty right out of your very own backyard. Myth #3 is that hiring an edible landscape consultant is too expensive and cannot be affordable. This is simply not true.
