How it all Began

Being from West Virginia, I thought I knew a thing or two about gardening. This spring when I started my very own garden (of the container variety) I quickly realized how little I actually knew about gardening. Despite hours of online research, no one told me that a monsoon might hit at 4:00 a.m. and I would have to run outside in my pajamas to save my little seedlings from drowning. Nor did I think that due to the aforementioned rain, I would spend much of the spring with my bathtub filled with waterlogged plants. And I most certainly was not told that I would spend many a morning chasing squirrels around my backyard in my bathrobe...
