I am a gardener in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina.
I live and garden “Inside the Beltline” and I travel outside the Beltline to work in RTP (Research Triangle Park – the largest research park in the World).
The purpose of this blog was to document all the questions I receive about gardening and catalog the information I have shared. It has grown as an attempt to regularly post ideas and thoughts about gardening and food.
You can often find me enjoying an iced mocha latte and people watching at Cup A Joe coffee house on Hillsborough Street near NCSU. I am also often walking around NCSU’s J C Raulston Arboretum, or around downtown Raleigh enjoying the First Friday Art Walks or many of the events downtown.
Originally from the Coast of North Carolina, where I enjoyed the water and islands full of nature. I moved to Greenville, North Carolina to attend East Carolina University, then moved to Raleigh after college.
I garden in Zone 7/8 and enjoying growing tropicals, natives, and wildflowers along with a small vegetable garden. I purchased a 1960 split-level house on half an acre of land near downtown and live there with my pit bull/black lab named Gus who I rescued from a shelter in 2009.
