Rabbit: An inspiration for the Home Gardener

GardenPeppersBefore having a garden in the backyard was a la mode, Rabbit was doing and doing big. It you watch episodes or movies of Winnie the Pooh, you will notice that Rabbit has rows of vegetables planted in his yard. Granted being in a 100 Hundred Acre Wood does afford the space to go all out with the planting, there are some elements that others can take and implement in their own spaces.

If you have a yard, you can select a sunny portion to use for your garden. Some choose to begin by planting the seeds. You can also start with small little seedlings. Both of these can be purchased at your local plant nursery or garden center. You may also want to do it the old fashion way and use seed from the fruits or vegetables that you have consumed.

Those living in small area can also plant some small vegetables in pots. They can be hanging pots or pots that you can place on the porch of patio.

Some individuals have also brought their outside garden from to the outside to the inside. The inside garden can include some small potted herbs or tomatoes. Not only does these small plants add to the meals that you make, but the aromas that they release into the house can be wonderful.

Maybe you won’t be growing cartloads of carrots like Rabbit, but you can have you own garden space that can fit any size space.
