Welcome! Whether you're new to vegetable gardening or have
been slurping warm homegrown tomatoes for years, you'll find how-to's and answers here.
Growing a vegetable garden is one of the
most empowering and rewarding things we can do, especially in these
challenging times! Whether in raised beds or in the ground, a vegetable garden feeds body and soul.
You're in the right place if you:
I have three gardens: a vegetable garden, a pollinator garden, and this website, which is a kind of garden, too. It has deep roots and keeps growing, and I invite you to come in and visit anytime. This page is the front gate, and you can either wander down the paths on the right, or check out the map on the bottom of any of those pages to go directly to the solution you need.
And now.... drumroll please... I'll share with you the greatest vegetable gardening secret I have learned over the decades:
Growing a garden is about building a relationship.
There are a few people who, like teenagers, get all infatuated at the start. This is good! It gives you energy because it's new and exciting. But when midsummer rolls around, and it's hot, and there's other stuff to do - if you start to neglect the relationship, it will wither.
And along with it, your vegetables.
So start with the mindset of being in a relationship with your vegetable garden. When we nurture our relationship with the plants and soil creatures and bees, they nurture us back. We feed them and they feed us. We give them what they need through our knowledge, experience and love.
"And the greatest of these is love",
I can provide some knowledge and inspiration to help you create a sustainable, vibrant, nutrient-dense vegetable garden.
You provide the love.
