Coming from a long line of farmers and gardeners, I almost can’t imagin that many do not indulge...however, we know this is just the case...many do not.

So, for those who love and do so, and for those who would like to and don’t know where or how to start...I’m offering this blog as a open door to information that will guide and inspire you.

With so much information around the internet, in books of all description...information can often be hard to seperate and narrow down to exactly what we need.

This blog is open to questions you may have from growing in a small patio plot to acres of field land.

Please visit my website and blog to get a better understanding of what qualifies me to be an expert in my field.

I’m also an avid history buff and research is my most loved form of reading...if I don’t know the answer to a question, I will find it.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you and learning about your passions for gardening.

    • I just started to develop a passion for gardening.  My problem is I am a visual person.  So I planted the plant, looked at it a few days, then I moved them.  I just realize they are not like furniture!

    • What a delightful response, the laughter made my evening.

      I can see you sizing up the plants, then moving them around to get a different look...but, you are so right, they are a bit different than designing a room.

      Actually, you can design your garden the same way you would design a room...just do it on paper instead of using the real thing.

      I love your spirit though..keep working it.

    • Also gardening is an art and requires knowledge.  I have to study and consider the following:

      . the soil type
      . the amount of sun in that area
      . the plant itself: how much sun, what kind of soil, the height of the plan, the root system, as well as the companion plant
      . when to cut, how to cut,
      . amount of water
      . drainage
      . the name of the plants (another language!)

      The whole 9 yards... it is not as easy as I thought.  

      I applaud to those who knows.

    • CD and Vikki,

      Gardening is certainly an art and if it’s worth our time then it’s worth the commitment to know as much as we need to know to do it well.

      However, it’s like any other project we undertake.

      We don’t need to know A-Z if it doesn’t apply to our area of interest.

      This should be the first decision...why do I want to garden and what do I want to accomplish...then seek your education  based around that plan....all the other stuff will happen in sideline doses and will not burden your plan with an overload of unneeded info.

      I have some good articles on my website that may be helpful in getting you started with your soil etc.

      Let me know if I can help.

      Happy weekend~
