Home and Garden Organizing Tips Blog Hop

My good friend Rachel from the Ponds Farmhouse is hosting this roundup of creative organizing ideas and I’m super excited to be a part of it.

In case you are new here, I’m Stacy, a self-taught master gardener who lives and gardens in north central New Jersey, zone 6a.

A year ago, we moved to a beautiful 1850 Farmhouse with 10 acres of gardens, sculptures, and statues.

I’ve been gardening for well over 20 years and enjoy helping beginner gardeners find their inner green thumb, as well as discover a love for all things plants and flowers. I love to bring the outdoors inside my home too.

I hope you enjoy visiting my home today and hope you come back so we can grow stuff and create beautiful spaces together.

8 Simple Ways to Organize Your Garden and Home

As a gardener, the day after Christmas is over, I am all about my gardens.

From what projects I want to tackle to houseplant care and starting my seeds indoors, I like to get organized!

The best quality seed sales are out now so I’m sharing how to get organized when starting seeds indoors.

Have you ever started seeds indoors before?

Sowing Seeds Indoors Without a Greenhouse

It’s a great way to get a jump on the growing season and grow plants that are not readily available in your locality.

Not to mention, it’s a great way to garden in winter.

When you order a lot of different plant varieties, your head can really spin with all the different dates and instructions on the back of the seed packets.

So it helps to break it all down before getting started.

To make it easier, I shared 7 simple tips for getting organized when sowing seeds indoors.

And the best part?

How to Start Seeds Indoors Without a Greenhouse

There’s a free printable at the end of the post to help guide you through the seed-starting process.

If you want to learn how to start seeds and grow a bountiful garden, this post is part of a seed starting series.

Whether you want to grow flowers, vegetables, herbs, or other plants, THIS series has you covered from seed selection through the entire growing season.

In the coming weeks, I’m going to be organizing a garage for all of my gardening stuff. Last year, I started all of my seeds here and then moved them to the sunroom under the grow lights.

Plus I need to get ready for spring! Because there are a lot of new gardening projects here that I want to tackle.

Since we just moved into our home last year before the holidays, we literally unpacked and just started living so we did not miss Christmas.

But now that we’ve lived here for a year and are more settled, it’s time to organize kitchen and closets.

So join me for some more garden and home organizing ideas and inspiration over the next few months.
