I’m launching a bi-weekly newsletter in 2021 meant to inform local plant enthusiasts about What to Do Now In Your Garden. This is Pac NW focused and meant to be an invaluable asset to anyone wanting to successfully grow edible plants. I will talk about landscape plants & flowers a little bit, too, and OF COURSE, a subscription means you have direct one-on-one access to me and can send in pictures/questions about your yard to me directly.
It’s a coaching-newsletter hybrid and I’m pretty excited about communicating with you this way and making 2021 an amazing growing year!
The best thing about this newsletter is this…..
It is time and season-specific for anyone growing in the Pacific NW. I will track the weather, sun and temperature and send out hyper-relevant tips and tricks on how to grow the most successful garden. Not every year is the same, so hard fast rules and dates for gardening simply don’t exist.
There is too much bad garden advice out there.
Garden how-tos are a dime a dozen – and even that may be too generous. Anyone can Google “how to grow tomatoes” and read 15 articles on the subject from people all over the world, many of whom are being paid pennies for their thoughts, or simply hoping for click bait. That’s not me.
Even many books are kinda futile – I’ve always been so frustrated with how many gardening authors present information in a loose, instructional way. Do this, do that, but they never explain why. Do I really need to plant my garlic in the last 2 weeks of October? Can’t I plant some in November? It’s so confusing! I actually know what I’m doing and these how-to books even perplex me, so I pity the novice gardener trying to sort it out!
I’ve been that person. I’ve been a novice gardener. I so get it and that’s why I’m very passionate about sharing information that HELPS. I share information in an easily digestible way so that readers UNDERSTAND why they’re doing what they’re doing in the garden. Simple. Straightfoward.
THIS NEWSLETTER IS FOR YOU, IF
- You want real time, localized information about what do to in your garden
- You don’t want to think too hard about planning/timing/being strategic
- You just want someone to tell you when to do something
- You want to understand the “why” about what you’re doing so you can make an educated choice about how you’ll approach your garden
Here’s a fact: THERE ARE NOT MANY HARD & FAST RULES ABOUT GARDENING.
This newsletter dispels some common myths (“Don’t water you tomato plants, so yo , “if you cut the flowers off basil it will keep growing”) and shares with the many OPTIONS you have for tending your garden. No more listening to your friend who thinks they know…….with this twice a month, seasonal update you’ll have true information on hand to make an educated choice – not just my opinion about how things should be done.
I’m a rule breaker by nature. I don’t subscribe to many common beliefs. Many a garden book has told me not to sow beet seed past August, but guess what? I’ve sown it in October and harvested beautiful beets in March! I had a strategy, and I manipulated the environment to do so, but you can do this too. Urban farming and growing food isn’t a challenging mystery left best to farmers.
YOU, my little brown thumb, can grow food with ease, I promise. You just need a little timely, informational support and that’s what I’m here to provide.
Give it a shot!
If you don’t like it after the first month, you can cancel your annual subscription without penalty.
