Welcome to heathersgarden's Member Page
I'm an avid gardener, and have gardened my whole life (although somewhat begrudgingly in my teens:)) I grew up in Texas where the weather is extremely variable, and we have two dead seasons a year: winter and summer. In 2000, my husband and I moved to beautiful Tennessee, where the weather is also highly variable, but we have four distinct lovely seasons.
In 2004, we bought our first house, and even before unpacking, I got my first shovel and planted some irises. That first bed has now taken over the whole yard leaving only small islands of grass in the front and back, surrounded by a mish-mash of shrubs, flowers, herbs and veggies. The best decision I made was to join the Spring Hill Garden Club, and the Master Gardener program. I met super people who have generously shared with me their knowledge, and many many plants. I get such a kick out of now in turn being able to share my experience and plants with others.
I recently decided to turn my deep and abiding passion for gardening into a farmers market business. It's been beyond rewarding to inspire and encourage others to try their hand at growing plants and berries for their table, or at least food for the bees, birds and butterflies.
Thanks for reading, and happy gardening! ~Heather
