I'm a Southern woman with family roots in farming. An Appalachain State University graduate, married, and the mother of two grown, and very nice, children. I am recently retired with a long-time hobby of growing flowers, vegetables and houseplants. Now a Master Gardener intern, earned in April 2017, I am excited to give to my community through gardening and gardening related events.

But, you don't have to be have certifications to be a good or even great gardener. Nor do you need a class to have fun and have a beautiful garden. Just go outside dig a hole and pop in some seeds and life will happen! Just do it!
Whoa hoss! Even the Deep South is in a Deep Freeze. Great gravy! (taking a quote from Nana B). Nothing to do but sit and watch the snow on the ground. It's 9:00 on this fine winter day 27F, 6 inches of snow on the ground and another sweep of winter mix headed our way. Scary. A similar scenario 50 years ago in L'ton shut down the power for a week. It was a long, boring, week. That was my take away as a twelve year old.
There are gardening things to do indoors. Today I organize seeds resolved to throw out the old ones.
