Hey, it’s Phil from SmilingGardener.om. I apologize in advance for the wind noise – I don’t have a wireless mic on today so i just have to use the camera mic.
I haven’t been making any videos this time of year because this is what my garden looks like under two feet of snow right now, but I wanted to share a couple of things with you today.
First is if you follow me on facebook and especially on youtube, you’re not really seeing anything from me this time of year, but if you come over to SmilingGardener.com, I am still writing an article every Saturday.
And if you want, you can sign up for my free ebook download and then you get on my email list and then I’ll actually send that out to you every Saturday. So I’m writing about how to improve your soil and control pests and how to grow nutrient-dense food and all of the same kind of stuff that I usually shoot videos about, and sharing tips for the upcoming growing season as soon as this melts.
And actually, I know some of you are gardening already if you live closer to the equator or by the ocean and so your weather is more moderated.
And I actually can see this because I sell organic fertilizers and microbial inoculants to gardeners in the U.S. and in January I starting getting orders from California and Texas and Florida and then gradually going into February and March, the orders come from further north and further east, so I can see when you’re starting to think about gardening.
If you are starting to think about fertilizers, I ship even during the winter because all of these products – even the microbial inoculants – it’s okay if they freeze for a little while. I get all of my stuff in in the winter as well from the manufacturers and it’s all good, so I’m shipping right now.
And you can go to SmilingGardener.com and click on ‘Organic Fertilizer Guide’ up in the main menu, and I sell products there but I also teach you how to make your own fertilizers, and it’s just a great comprehensive guide.
The main thing I wanted to ask of you today, because I am writing still right now and I’m going to be shooting more videos this year, and I’m always looking for more ideas for what to talk about – so I want to hear from you what is the one most important thing you want me to share this year on my website.
So let me know in the comments below, whether you’re on my blog right now or on facebook or on youtube, I will see that everywhere, and then I will have some ideas for what to create and then I’ll create it for you.
So that’s all for now. Talk to you soon.
Three quick things today (if you’re on my email list, you already know about the first two, so feel free to skip to the last one):
- I don’t make many videos in the winter, but I still write blog posts every Saturday, so for those of you who aren’t already on my email list, sign up here and I will send those out as I write them.
- I’ve just stocked up on a fresh batch of organic fertilizers and microbial inoculants, and despite the cold, I’m shipping (it’s actually okay for them to freeze for a few days), so feel free to check out my organic fertilizer guide if you haven’t done so yet this year.
- The main reason for today’s post: What’s the most important thing you want to learn more about for your organic garden this year? I’m looking for ideas, so let me know down below and I’ll do my best to put together some information for you over the next couple of months.
P.S. Ready for spring yet?
