a gardening blog that will highlight sustainable backyard gardening practices
I think it’s important to grow your own food & to support food grown in your own community. I hope to provide a good resource for local produce choices in the Daytona Beach area! As a mother of two, our posts will also be geared toward getting children involved in gardening & making it fun for the entire family!
With some help, I hope to share & document our backyard gardening experiences. I hope we can all learn from each other & together! So please subscribe to our website! Remember a garden is a garden, no matter how small!
A little bit about me…
I’m a true Floridian that grew up around my grandfather & mom gardening. I graduated from the College of Agriculture at the University of Florida where I took a few horticultural classes. I started container gardening when I moved out on my own & was more than happy to plant roots in the ground when I bought my first home. Our family of four (plus our English Bulldog) love to travel. We spent more than 60 days camping in nature last year!
I have practiced different types of gardening over the years & would say I follow my own version of square foot gardening, if I had to summarize my efforts. With the exception of a month or so of Florida’s thunderstorms & hot weather, I find that I can garden year around in the state’s sunny environment. I have several raised garden beds, a tumbler compost & various container gardens. I’ve talked my husband into building me another garden box this summer when gardening takes a break! Besides the wonderful benefits of having fresh, free & organic produce, I love gardening because there is so much to learn! Nature will never bore you!
