So in this update I go through the questions I usually ask others on my way to work.

Tell me about your first gardening experience?

Clark gardens and I hated it.

How did you learn how to garden organically?

My mom, Mike and Organic Gardening Magazine

Tell us about something that grew well this year.

So far potatoes and carrots.

Is there something you would do different next year or want to try/new?


Tell me about something that didn’t work so well this season.

My blueberries and raspberries

Which activity is your least favorite activity to do in the garden?

Anything that requires me to get down in the dirt. I like raised beds and keeping my jeans clean.

What is your favorite activity to do in the garden?

Eat the food. I’m not the biggest fan of harvest I just like to cook it.

What is the best gardening advice you have  ever received?

Water your blueberries.

A favorite tool that you like to use? If you had to move and could only take one tool with you what would it be.

The broadfork, although I’m still a big fan of the wheelbarrow. I want 4
