Nice to MeeT You
HI, I’M LEIGH, THE CREATOR OF WE GROW GOOD FOOD, WHERE YOU WILL FIND GARDEN-RELATED ARTICLES TO HELP YOU HAVE A BETTER GARDENING EXPERIENCE.
I believe that anyone with any interest should spend a bit of time tending to plants.
Gardening has always been a big area of interest for me. I have spent over 15 years messing with soil quality, plants, seeds, and spent a bit of time testing a lot of random plant varieties.
My interest as a gardener would have me pick up other related knowledge in things like herbalism, permaculture design, regenerative farming, rebuilding lost local food webs, food security, and other such things that are only now becoming more of a general focus.
WE GROW GOOD FOOD IS FOR YOU IF YOU ARE BRAND NEW TO GARDENING OR HAVE EXPERIENCE.
Every other week a new gardening article is out or at least anything related to gardening. Hopefully you will be inspired to work on your own gardening adventures.
In summer of 2007, I got a little put off with life. I wasn’t sleeping well from working a lot of hours on top of school. I felt fatigued and bored while also not having a lot of money that ruled out expensive hobbies.
The fatigue became a little more severe and I spent a lot of time in a cycle of working and recovering.
At some point I was sitting with some family and noticed a tomato seed that was set to go for the trash. On a whim, I wondered if I could grow something. What resulted was a cute little sprout and an endless appreciation for the slower things in life.
I decided to build a real garden in a space shy of an acre and slowed my life down some and reprioritized things. Instead of the ever present dull feeling, I found myself excited. I had ready access to a couple of yards until I began to work my own yard.
My hope is that this website is a place where people who love plants can find similar amazement, pride, and have a little more security knowing they can produce some of what they eat.
If I offer to take you plant shopping, will you want to go out tonight?Jack
