Dedicated to my Mom and Dad, who taught me how to garden


Families who play together - stay together, and so do families that eat together. I strongly believe that families who garden together also stay together. Every foundational thing I know about gardening I learned from my Dad: “Always water cucumbers at the root with warm water from the rain barrel.” I remember myself as a grumpy teenager who would rather be on the beach, unwillingly helping with staking tomato plants.
