    How about WHY garden. And then follow on from the reasons.

    For example: gardening to feed the poultry and ideas on what to plant, progress reports, bird reactions.

    Update: Doh! You have that covered. Site looks great!

    You could add in plant (zone) information, because most people do not understand what things can go in what areas, what zone their in and so on.

    Recipes for what's grown in the garden

    Green ways to fight the pests

    A "how to" on taking care of the vegetables once they are harvested. Really! Some people don't know.

    Mmmm, not so much a why should you garden as USE why should you garden to direct the topic. Personally, I am very interested in gardening to feed myself and my chickens. Those are two topics right there. I have no practical experience gardening, so some HOW would be pretty useful to me.
