Passion & pain. Perspective & purpose.
That’s what gardening brings to our lives – a sense of connection to the world around us. And that’s what The Small Town Gardener is all about.
To ensure that you (and I) have time to actually get some work done out there, I don’t tend to provide endless updates on the state of my mesclun, mind or marriage (for the record – fairly spicy, fairly sound, fairly stable). Instead, you’ll find a collection of my columns mixed with tips, advice and resources for managing and enjoying your garden month-to-month.
So for the moments when you aren’t creating, maintaining or battling in the garden, grab a mug or glass of something good and let’s commiserate together. In addition, subscribing to the Facebook page will alert you to other articles and tips that aren’t posted here. Are you a Mid-Atlantic gardener? This Month’s Garden will give you an idea of what you should be thinking about right now.
A garden doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t have to be large. And in the middle of August, it doesn’t even have to be green. It just has to be yours. Your balcony, your patio, your rented city lot or ten acre deer preserve. Whatever you garden, wherever you garden – join me as we plunge our hands in the earth and begin to reconnect.
