Over the years, I’ve grown passionate about gardening. I love spending time in the dirt, nurturing things to grow, and learning how to produce food for my family in the most environmentally-conscious and economically-efficient ways. In the fall of 2014 I was certified as a Master Gardener trainee through Michigan State University’s Extension program. As a Master Gardener, I share knowledge about plants, pests, and best practices with my community. In addition to volunteering on local projects to earn my 40 hours of trainee service, I posted information on my former blog (Mo Diggity) to reach the wider online community.
The “quick guides” below are geared towards vegetable gardening newbies: they provide the basic information necessary to get people utilizing whatever space and resources they have and get the simplest way possible. My personal perspective on vegetable gardening is that everyone can–and should–grow their own food. Whether it is a basil plant in your kitchen, some pots on the patio, or a whole yard, there is nothing I’ve found as rewarding as growing my own food (except, perhaps, raising chickens). In total, the quick guides have had over 100 repins on my Pinterest site, which is saying a lot for how little readership my blog received.
