Welcome to our blog!... "As The Shovel Turns"

Here is a place we share topics that are sometimes humorous, and sometimes serious but everything is factual.

We hope you visit often. As the shovel turns up new things in the garden, we hope your garden will continue to succeed and flourish.  

You may occasionally find information posted you wish to download or print to collect for your personal library of information. Feel free to save what you wish. As master gardeners our goal is to enthusiastically share our love of gardening with you and increase your knowledge and compassion for what we enjoy, especially with others who have the same interests.
