A Perennial Food Garden

There’s an old joke that the older you get, the farther away the ground gets. It’s funny, but it’s also basically true. Our largest part of the garden is by the road, which also seems to be getting farther away. The beds are raised, but only slightly. So we decided to make that part the […]

Feeding the Gardening Addiction

Admitting you have a problem is the first step they say, and I came right out with it back in 2009 when this blog began. It’s all above right there in the byline. I never meant to be cured, mind you; but rather to share my passion and experience with others. And okay, to get […]

32 Seed Companies

I posted this picture in a Facebook gardening group I co-admin recently. The reason I did is that I am trying to not buy any seeds for this planting season; more as an exercise in self-restraint than anything else. And every time I look at my seed stash, I realize I don’t need to. I […]

I often get asked how I came to be an avid, albeit addicted, gardener. To some extent it is in my blood. My Great Grandfather and Great Uncle were florists, and my Dad grew up helping in their greenhouses. My childhood was filled with the gorgeous ornamental gardens at our own house. My Dad grew […]

A Positive Attitude – You Can Grow That!

“It seems like gardeners are never happy,” my husband commented a number of years ago, “Either it’s too hot or it’s too cold, too much rain or not enough. I thought gardening was supposed to be fun.” Now I knew he wasn’t talking about gardeners in general, he only knows one. He meant me. And […]
