I am one of those people that got into gardening the round about way. You know the way.

When you are in highschool you need a job. You actually need money, but the job is the means to and end. So without knowing anything about the profession I went and applied at the local greenhouse. And I actually got the job.

It was great, it introduced me to the world of plants, and I have been doing it ever since.

When I got married and we bought a house, most peple would have waited. I started a garden, at least the beginnings of a garden in the first weeks.

And I have been building ever since.

Now I am helping my daughter in law with her garden and it is an incredible chance to bond.

This site is a collection of my instructions to her and other odds and ends that come to mind!
