I am an amateur gardener with a lifetime of experience playing with dirt, and a passion for all things green. I have both of my parents to thank for this. My mother for teaching me the basics of caring for plants, from the propagation of plants like geraniums, ice plant, spider plant, etc… to the sowing of seeds from avocados to tomatoes. And my father for teaching me the proper use of gardening equipment like mowers, hedge trimmers, etc… to working on irrigation (sprinkler) systems and much more.
