An Update from Dave

An Update from Dave

Good morning gardeners! I wanted to write a post to update you on a few events going on in my life. I don’t write much personal information on this blog. I always like to keep my writing very close to gardening, but I felt it was time to share an update with you. For the last 8 years I have been a stay at home dad. For 7 of those years I’ve been writing about gardening here in Growing The Home Garden. It’s been a lot of fun to be able to be at home with my 4 children and explore gardening through their eyes. I love talking about vegetable gardening, plant propagation, and all the projects I’ve been able to do. I was even able to start a small business (Blue Shed Gardens) growing and selling vegetable and herb plants locally through a farmers market. That will all continue this year but I’m adding something to the mix.

My ultimate goal has always been the same: to own and run a family nursery/farm. That is still my dream but while working toward my dreams I have to be able to support my family. This year I entered an area that I have always had a lot of interest in: real estate. Real estate is very closely related to the home and garden industry. A career in real estate also has the added satisfaction of helping people with one of the most important financial decisions they can make for their family.

In Tennessee the real estate market is really growing. Through a combination of factors our small town, Spring Hill, is experiencing massive growth while other areas of the country are still having trouble. Our family loves living here and being a part of the community.  If you live in Tennessee or would like to and need someone to help you with real estate I would love to help you. You can find my real estate website at where I am working with Keller Williams Realty. As a side benefit you also get an experienced gardener who can answer all of your landscape questions!

My hope is that I can continue to help people both here on my blog with focused gardening content as well as in my community through real estate. This blog will not change in its focus. I definitely won’t be selling homes here on this blog (but there may be a nice garden photo every now and then from homes I visit!) My postings may be at a slightly slower pace while I adjust my new schedule. Today I wanted to invite you to follow me on this adventure. If you have friends or family in need of real estate help you know you have someone you can trust.  

I really appreciate your continued reading of this blog. I have always enjoyed sharing my passion for gardening with you. Thank you for your continued support!
