It's Spring Gardening Time!

This post brought to you by Whitney Farms. All opinions are 100% mine.

While I was cleaning out old boxes of stuff in storage, I came across this super cute cat planter:

I wasn't really planning to plant anything this Spring, but now that I found that I pretty much HAVE to, right?  I mean, how cute would the cat look with plants sticking out of him?  (Maybe this is just a crazy cat lady thing? Whatever.)

Amusingly enough, while I was trying to decide what to plant, and if I want to grow several different things this year or just stick to this one little container (catnip seems really appropriate- and really useful in my house!) I got an e-mail that led me to finding out about a company called Whitney Farms®, a gardening supplies company that specializes in natural products like organic soil and organic plant food

To tell you the truth, I'd never really thought about the soil that I use to grow things before.  I mean, you hear about organic groceries all the time, but organic soil?  It makes sense, though, since plants get their nutrients from the soil, we should probably put a little more thought into what they're growing in if it's something you plan to eat!

Clicking on any of the above links will take you to a coupon for $3 off any Whitney Farms plant food or soil!  They're made by the same company that makes Miracle-Gro, and I thought it was pretty snazzy that they have specific types of plant food designed for different types of plants, like rose food, tomato and vegetable food, and even hibiscus food!

I'm thinking about trying to find a few more cute, unusual planters and doing a whole little window garden, kind of like this:

Are you guys growing anything? If so, do you go all organic, or not really worry about it? Any suggestions for what to put in my kitty planter?
