While I don't recall the exact date, some time in the beginning of May, four years ago, this website went live. Each year has been an amazing experience for me and I am incredibly grateful and pleased to say that I have signed on for another year.
In this job, I have not only learned and stretched, but have had a whopping good time as well. I have grown hundreds of plants (killed a bunch too), harvested bushels of vegetables, fought marauding critters, taken thousands of pictures and written over 600 blogs and hundreds of pages of articles.
I am thankful and also exceedingly touched by your comments, advice, letters, support, interest, humor and feedback. Last week I heard from someone in Israel, who is growing tomatoes in pots in a homemade greenhouse, a man in Dakar, Sengal, gardening on a balcony and a woman in Portugal who starting a business growing blueberries in containers. Readers also shared stories and gave advice on how to deter critters, grow okra and successfully start seeds.
I am look forward with delight and wonder to another year of growing with you all.
