Ep. 1-14: Summer Garden Journal 1 | Floods + Staying Sane

For the summer I’m opting for Summer Garden Journals on the podcast. As we all know it can be quite difficult to stay on top of the garden when the growing season is in full swing and I think these summer garden journals will be a great way to chronicle what’s going on here in my garden in Texas while still providing some good gardening podcast content for everyone out there who is listening while they garden, dream about gardening, or you know, commute to work!

The flood links I talked about in the podcast are here:

Ep. 1-13: The Wonder of Beginning | Mandy Steward

It was the fall of 2010 and I was fresh off the Appalachian Trail with my husband and came across Mandy Steward via a mutual friend. I was itching to reinvigorate my creativity after many months of hiking and here was this artist whose words spoke to me. I’ve been a fan of her work ever since! Mandy is an artist and author based out of Oklahoma but she’s also a very fresh gardener! One of the goals of producing this podcast was to eventually showcase gardeners from all skill levels and it was incredibly fun to chat with her about all of the wonder that being a beginner in anything can bring! There was so much within our conversation that I connected to and it was a gentle reminder to myself that no matter how many years we’ve been gardening there’s always something new to learn every year!

Ep. 1-12: Starting from Scratch | NorCalKatie

When I finally joined Twitter in mid-2011 it took me awhile to get the hang of it, finding people to chat with. What I eventually discovered was a rich gardening community that I connected with. Katie was one of those people that I found and over the years we’ve chatted about gardening and other random life topics via Twitter, email, and our blogs. When my gardening collaborative blog was in its hey-day, Katie showed off her garden on our 2013 Summer Garden Tour feature. Since then she’s moved a few more times and is now starting over garden-wise (and in other ways), once again, at a brand new place in Northern California.

Katie is very enthusiastic about gardening and I had a very fun conversation with her! When she told me she talked fast I thought, ‘nah’! But yes, she’s got a rapid fire pace that keeps you on your toes! Show notes are below!
