We are Nicki and David a couple who really loves
gardening! We have only been gardening seriously for a few years
now and we are continually learning. That’s just one of the great
things about gardening – we are constantly learning and experimenting
while working in our gardens. We get outside and enjoy the weather
and the world around us. We really pay attention to the birds
and to other little animals around us. Gardening really makes
us feel connected to the world.
Since we bought our first home and started our
first “non-container” gardens we have really gotten a fever for
working in the soil and watching things grow. There is something
really satisfying about eating a nice ear of Silver Queen and
knowing YOU grew it!
Since we have many pets, and are also environmentally
concerned we are very interested in and curious about organic
gardening. We are also big lovers of heirloom varieties and of
conserving our native plant life and wildlife.
We started this web site out of a desire to have
a place to share our interest and passion in gardening. We want
to share what we have learned by our own trials and efforts as
well as learn from fellow gardeners, and we encourage others to
send us their tips and photos, success stories or favorite products.
Many things that we have found to be interesting
and/or helpful can be found on our site. We want to make it easy
for fellow gardeners to find information. I’ve done enough searches
on garden topics to wish for a more concise directory of information.
To that end we have compiled links to all states county extension
offices and have also provided links to a wide range of plant
and gardening web sites Some of these sites are retailers or
wholesalers; some are guide sites much like our own.
We hope you enjoy our site. We wish you luck in your own backyards. You can
check back to see how ours is doing. :)
