Radio Guest

Hello fellow gardeners.  I hope this finds you and your plants surviving this time of year in the desert southwest!  It’s hard to believe that August is here and it is time to think about your fall gardening.  We are fortunate that we can harvest another crop of our favorite warm weather foods!  Let’s get gardening.

I will be guest speaker on Arbico-organics weekly radio show with Sheri Frey this Sunday August 9th at 11:00 am central time.  If you are unable to tune in, the shows are available to listen to at a later time.  I have added a link below:




New To My Site

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at my web site.  I just added a new tab with before and after photos of just a few projects I have created with my clients.  I am also adding updated photos to the front yard renovation tab as well.  The success of the renovation has been amazing as you will see in the photos.  If you would like to see my gardens in person, please contact me to set up a time.

It’s hard to believe another new year is upon us! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I have been gardening the past few days, planting more broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage seed. I also planted some tomato seeds, preparing for a spring garden. The broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage seed were planted directly in the ground, the tomato seeds I planted in cells to start indoor. It’s not too late to start lettuce, chard, carrots, spinach, cilantro, parsley, kale and arugula.
I also started a worm farm that I received for my birthday!! Here I am just over a month out and have collected some “gold”, worm castings for some of my plantings!
