about get planting

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!
