About

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.

  1. I am very excited to find your blog. I am planning a move to Fairhope in 2013 when my husband retires. I too am a Master Gardener. Although I am presently in zone 8 I know gardening will be much different in Fairhope.
    I also dabbble as an artist:)

    1. Fairhope is a lovely town and I know you’ll enjoy it. The Master Gardener community is very active here. Thanks for following my blog.

  2. I live on 30A & sometimes Pensacola, and have family in Fairhope and Mobile. I just came across your blog and love it. I do not have a green thumb but am always looking for advise. I do know my citrus trees have gone crazy with fruit this season due to all of the warm weather, that’s about it! Will stay in touch for spring pot planting ideas! Best- Susan 30AEATS.com

    1. Thanks for the heads-up, Kevin. I’ll just post your comment and hope people look into the book. I will and hope to give my 2-cents review.
