Welcome to your new happy place. My name is Shelbie & I own a Mobile Gardening business in Cape Coral. We specialize in weeding, trimming, organic vegetable gardening and, well, green gardens. I urge everyone to give it a try and “Get Growing” down that road to a greener, healthier tomorrow.

“Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers, Plant your own and feed your soul”. Mario Quintana

Front yard vegetable gardens are in and non-nutritious grass is out. It’s time to make the change and the Florida Senate agrees! They have jumped on board with a bill they passed in March stating you can now garden in your front yard all over the state of Florida!

So….what are you waiting for? Let’s “Get Growing.”

I’ll show you some easy fun ways how you, too, can start growing with kitchen scraps you would normally just throw away!

Let’s take a walk….. all the way to your refrigerator. What do you see? Maybe some green onions, garlic, carrots, celery, romaine lettuce, potatoes, maybe some herbs. That’s just to name a few of the over 20+ edible plants that you can re-grow time and time again! All you need is a small jar, shot glass, cup, or even an ice cube tray/ These can all be perfect for these gardening experiments!

“There are no Gardening mistakes, only experiments.” -Janet Killburn Phillips

Green Onions

Chop the end off about 1 1/2 inch from the bottom, set roots in water and watch them grow! You can plant them in a few days or keep chopping them as you cook. It’s that easy!

Get Growing

Lettuce

Chop about 2 inches from the bottom, place in water for a few days until you see mature roots. Then plant and enjoy!

Get Growing

Carrots

Cut about 1 inch from the top of greens, place in water and watch them grow. The carrots themselves don’t grow much, but the carrot top is a great source of calcium, potassium, vitamin C and more. Not to mention they go great on salads & wraps.

Pineapple

One of my favorites! Not only is it a beautiful plant for your yard, but it will also bear fruit time and time again. Cut close to the top of the fruit, take off all the fruit, then peel the bottom leaves off until you see little roots. Place in water until the roots have matured, about 5 days to a week, then plant.

Celery

Chop 2 inches from the bottom, place in water, then plant and enjoy.

I’m going to walk you through my garden every month so you, too, can experience all the wonders gardening has to offer.

Stay tuned & watch your new projects grow. Happy Gardening!
