- Share information and advice from the successes and failures of other Gurney’s gardeners.
- Give you storing, canning, cooking recipes, preservation of seasonal vegetables & plants, and other gardening ideas.
- Feature of a seasonal plant ready for your garden or introduction of a new or improved plant from the Gurney’s catalog.
- Present a travel log of pictures & information of gardens visited both residential & commercial
- Include ‘Sharepoints’ informational links, books, and magazine articles
Gardening is a passion of mine. It is one of those things in life that can produce almost immediate satisfaction and pleasure. It also provides lasting enjoyment, as many things that we plant, come back year after year, grow and spread and even change with the seasons.
Why I garden; well we have all heard about studies that gardening has been shown to lessen heart attacks, reduce stress and improve mental health. It provides me exercise and a means of getting outdoors into the fresh air. I find it a wonderful way of instilling pride and community. It is one way to get fresh herbs, vegetables and fruit minimally processed, (without having to read a label, knowing exactly what is going into our bodies). It can save a bit of money at the grocery store too.
This is who I am —- So now I am going to ask who you are. In the comments section, leave me –
