About Growing The Home Garden

Thank you for stopping by to visit this corner of the gardening world. This blog is about my experiences in our first home garden, hence the name Growing The Home Garden. I’ve been studying gardening and experimenting with plant propagation on my own now for several years with much of my gardening taking place on the back porch of our old apartment. On the last day of February of 2007 we closed on our home and vigorously began the remodel of the inside and outside of the former foreclosure house. It’s become our home and every day in the gardening is bringing us closer to the dream garden all gardeners long to create. It’s a long road covered with a whole lot of dirt and mulch but it brings us rewards each and everyday.

The Beginning

From 2007 to 2014 I was fortunate to be a stay at home dad. We began with one and now have 5 children. Being a stay at home dad had many opportunities and challenges and gave me time in the garden as well as  an opportunity to introduce our children to gardening.

What’s next for Growing The Home Garden?

Our next adventure is moving to a new property which will include building a new home. You can follow those adventures here too. We’re in the early stages of planning so I haven’t had a lot to talk about publicly yet except for the exploration of the property.
