Give us a garden tip!

I'm not really an expert, but my dad passed on advice from his grandfather - when the green beans are 1 foot high, give them a little tug to disturb and aerate the roots. And my green beans usually do really well!

What 'hood do you live in?

haha. North Springfield

What are you growing this year?

I had to leave behind my county community garden plot when we moved, so I've just got some herbs in a pot, but plans for raised beds soon!


Hi! I grew up helping my dad in his large garden, and have tried to have gardens in many of the rental places I've lived. We just bought a house in Springfield, and I'm looking forward to planning my veggie, herb and fruit gardens here!
