I haven’t been a gardener very long. In fact each year that I try, I fail in some areas; but I keep trying. It’s a lot of fun but I wouldn’t feed my family doing it.
Over the past few years I’ve grown in containers, a raised bed of my own, and a community garden and have had so much fun.
This year I think I have it down; at least a little bit. So, I’m planning now for my spring garden head on.
I’m a certified Junior Master Gardener teacher. There were 10 students in my class that I taught at a local nature center in South Alabama on the Eastern Shore. We gardened at a community garden. All were homeschoolers so you may have seen us mid-day, mid-week planting, crafting, acting like beneficial and non-beneficial insects.
Now, I spend time in Oxford, MS gardening and holding workshops at the local public library. I’ve taught back yard wild life habitats, preparing your garden, helped the library start a seed lending library and taught how to save seeds. I’m working on my next 3 classes for 2016.
While not technically living on the coast, Mississippi is a coastal state and I will return to live at the beach again one day, so I keep active writing the coastal garden stories.
This blog is a little of everything gardening: wildlife photos, my garden journal, garden advice and recipes. Thanks for reading.
