How Will You Stay Motivated To Keep Growing Foods

Most of you saw 'first-hand' in my gardening journey, what I did to stay motivated and to become a successful gardener such as:
  • Got Family Involved: If you truly want to get motivated and stay motivated while growing foods, get others around you involved. You can do this with family members, friends and neighbors.
  • Got Mentor: I did not only attend regular, local FREE natural gardening center meetings and classes, the instructors there, both a man and woman, served as my mentor.
  • Started My Own Garden Club: I started my own garden club "Cathy Harris Garden Club"(www.CathyHarrisGardenClub.com) and laid out every step aspiring gardeners could take by writing articles and selecting quality videos.
  • Released a New Gardening Book: I launched an entire food growing campaign around the release of my book in June 2017 "Overcoming Food Deserts in Your Community: How To Start a Home, School or Community Garden, Food Co-op and Food Coalition" - available as an e-book and paperback book.
  • Launched A National Tour: As a Speaker, Author, and Coach, I launched a national tour "The Cathy Harris Tour," around the release of my book and national food campaign and went to 8 cities.
  • Created A National Gardening Movement: I created a new national movement around growing my own foods at "Virtual Organic Garden Clubs"(www.VirtualOrganicGardenClubs.com) and educated my online community.
  • Launched National Masterminds: I started my own monthly Mastermind, Think Tank and Classroommeetings and training platforms around growing foods at the website www.FreeConferenceCall.com on, 2nd Tuesdays of each month from 7:00-8:00 p.m. (CST).

Growing our own foods is new to me, but I am up for the challenge. No...the picture above is not my garden. However, it looks identical to our garden when I was growing up. My garden so far - is the picture below, or that's how it initially looked when my mate and I got started with it. 
Being raised on a farm, this is my first garden as an adult. At 60 years old, many people would probably be too embarrassed to admit that they are finally growing their first garden. However, it's especially Seniors today that need to start growing their own foods to make sure foods are safe to eat; to fight diseases; and to cut down on grocery bills, especially as they age. 

Check out this picture from my first backyard raised bed garden. We found some plywood laying around and just put the garden together. The stick is propped under there until we ca…

Step 1 - Buy The Book:
The below book will lay out the foundation for this new national food project as it will teach each family, who is not familiar with growing their foods - how to start a home, school, or community garden, food co-op or food coalition so read the book today, available as an e-book and paperback book "Overcoming Food Deserts in Your Community: How To Start A Home, School or Community Garden, Food Co-op or Food Coalition."

I also have my own garden club at "Cathy Harris Garden Club" (www.CathyHa…

Breathing Life Back Into My Garden for the Second Time This Growing Season

Breathing Life Back Into My Garden for the Second Time This Growing Season
Aug. 2, 2018
The thing about growing a crop – one minute your plants might be thriving and because of lack of water, too much rain, too many pests, etc., your crop can die off on you in a minute, especially if you don’t keep a watchful eye on it.
None of us can be with our crops 24/7, even though we would like to. Two weeks after celebrating my “One Year Gardening Journey” (https://conta.cc/2L64l5g) and three weeks after I successfully cleared a black fungus from my garden that I probably got from buying a batch of infected compost tea at a gardening center, by using a “Homemade Fungicide” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UITpPBdSDcY) -- my 3 raised beds has suffered yet another major dilemma.
I went out of town for 4 days to a family reunion and came back to a garden that has almost dried up and stop producing. My cherry tomatoes have stopped producing.
The 4 rows of Swiss Chard were turning yellow instead of gr…
