REALLY SIMPLE PRACTICAL – HANDS ON TIPS.

Things that will save you time in the garden and make your experience a lot more fun.

I’ve worked with entomologists and rose growers, soil specialists and farmers. And all that information is pulled together right here for you – on this site.

I love tracking down the best tool or pest or garden solution and posting it here for you to read or watch or hear about.

I follow leads for obscure questions and tie up all the threads of garden information so you get the practical knowledge in one place and that allows you to grow your own microgreens or a beautiful head of cauliflower.

DO YOU KNOW WHY SPINACH IS BEST STARTED IN FALL OR EARLY SPRING?

And why carrots, even though they are frost tolerant, are better started a bit later than you might think?

AND WHY WOULD YOU BOTHER STARTING BEETS LATER?

I talked to a farmer and he reminded me if you don’t want big woody beets – and the chefs he works with sure don’t – then it’s better to start beets both early and late.

Well if you were wondering about making compost or the best way to make use of your home greenhouse before it’s warmed up enough to grow tomatoes, you’ve come to the right place.

THERE ARE SO MANY TINY TIDBITS I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO SHARE WITH YOU AND THAT’S BECAUSE I LOVE GARDENING.

I love to write and speak about gardening too but I don’t just talk about it. And that’s the twist. I write about it and I do it.

I get so much satisfaction from raising a juicy tomato or a massive kale or a giant pest free broccoli. It just keeps me eating and keeps me growing.

And once you try it? Well I know you’ll be hooked. You’ll demand better food wherever you go. And heh – you can have money you can have time and you can have happiness. But compared to a person with a clean crisp carrot right out of their garden? Oh- you’ll never be richer or happier.

I’VE KNOWN THIS FOR EVER AND EVER AND SERIOUSLY? I JUST WANT TO SHARE MY
LOVE OF FOOD WITH YOU. JOIN THE THE FOOD REVOLUTION AND GROW MORE
ORGANIC AND MINERALIZED FOOD.

COME ON IN OUT OF THE COLD AND SEED YOURSELF SILLY. I’M GIVING YOU
PERMISSION TO PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD – IN THE GARDEN.
