"When life kicks you in the butt, use it as energy for forward motion", Tom Myrick.
I graduated from the Media Production Technology Curriculum at Tidewater Community College in 1988. Working as a professional Media Production Specialist/Photojournalist for most of my adult life, I became proficient in many aspects of multimedia production.
In 2006, I completed the Master Gardener program and started attending horticulture classes at a local community college. Writing, photography, and gardening are passions of mine; altogether, a “marriage made in heaven".
Having a diversified set of work skills and a lifetime of experience, I currently write for several online vegetable gardening publications and own a landscaping business. My mission is to encourage vegetable gardening throughout the world.
Play in the dirt,
‘Planting out‘ is some of the jargon used by gardeners that means to take a young plant that is growing in a container and transplant the plant in the ground to grow. We spent most of the morning planting out the leafy vegetables.
This spring crop of leafy vegetables will be ready for harvesting by the end of April.
On this mild sunny day, we pulled back the black plastic with the first day of spring arriving and started working the raised row beds for planting. The black plastic protected the beds from the heavy rains and kept weeds from growing all through the winter. The last frost dates are just a couple of days behind us; however, we had snow in April last season. The greenhouse is full of early spring vegetables awaiting to go into the ground. Over the next couple of days, we will start transplanting the plants from the greenhouse into the garden.
