About Me

Hello fellow plant lovers, I’m glad you’ve taken the time out of your busy day to stop by and visit my site.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been most content outside. As a child in Southern California playing in a cement back yard I craved more green. Later as a college student, my all time favorite job was working part-time in the University greenhouse for the summer. Since then I’ve gardened, living in South Eastern Pennsylvania and carefully watching over my 4×8 square foot vegetable garden, next door to a sweet neighbor with fantastic plantings and the tendency to pass things over the fence, as well as currently developing my Wisconsin gardens for the last six years. I haven’t managed to make gardening my career but it’s always been my passion.

I’d like to invite you along as I experiment with new plants, combinations, composting, propagating, and various garden crafts. I was inspired to develop this blog for some of my friends who were new to gardening, but even if you’ve gardened for years, I hope that you enjoy yourself here. For everyone, Thank You for taking the time to visit my site. Go ahead and take the time to look around, you may be interested in visiting the FG Community forums page on this site where you can rub elbows with fellow green thumbs, or just hit Home to visit my most popular posts.

If you are interested in creative or educational seminars, or would just like to learn more, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
