Being Thankful…With a Gardening Spin

It is our goal at Eco Garden Systems to embrace life through the shared purpose of gardening – and for that we are thankful.

Garden Planning For a Better Harvest

Garden Planning For a Better Harvest 1920 1055 Eco Garden Systems

As gardening season ends, our thoughts inevitably turn to “Next Year.” As a Minnesota Twins fan, we often do this as, once again, the Twins get bounced from the playoffs by the Yankees (and the Yankees got bounced by the Astro’s – sweet justice). “Next year” is always hopeful and can lead to a better gardening experience in the future.
