Welcome to getplanting.com, for those who want to dig into gardening, or just try out a small project or two.
I’ve loved gardening since I was a little girl. I think it may have started when my mom and I planted a little section in our backyard garden just for me. Later, I took a summer job at a greenhouse, and learned even more about plants and their care.
It didn’t hurt that gardening was in my blood — my father and grandfather before him were avid vegetable gardeners, going back to their European roots. But most of what I’ve learned has been hands-on as an adult, in our own home garden and community garden plot–and through reading volumes of books. Enjoy!
