What I Write About
I have several cottage flower gardens, fruits, and raised beds for vegetables in Zone 5. Gardening in New England provides challenges because of the short growing season. I work around the short summer by starting vegetable and flower seeds indoors. Recently, we erected a hoop house that allowed us to lengthen our growing season. I have perennial flower gardens in both shade and sun, and dividing perennials is a task that I sincerely enjoy. I'm a Yankee Gardener at heart trying to figure out how to garden economically, repurpose things, and pass along those tips and ideas along with other topics of gardening interest.
Why I Started My Gardening Blog.
Sharing my passion for gardening with others by blogging while also learning from fellow gardeners is a good thing! I am a master gardener who loves to garden and have friends in the master gardener community who freely share information, guidance, and plants. I wanted to create this same type of environment by blogging about my gardening adventures. The constructive comments fellow gardeners leave on a post are very interesting, and I can usually benefit from their advice whether they are new or seasoned gardeners. An on-line gardening community is a wonderful way to continue to learn. I hope you'll join in.
- Blogging about gardening can include step-by-step instructions, DIY ideas, advice, ideas, or pictures of your gardens. I love to see pictures, but there is a line where there are too many pictures of the same plant and hardly any information. Of course, there is also the other side of the post, when there is too long a post and no pictures. A nice balance of words that can help someone be a better gardener and pictures of your successes or failures may be the secret to success.There is so much to learn about gardening, and it can be so much fun to do with people from a variety of backgrounds, interests, and zones
