Welcome to my blog. I am a Master Gardener and Certified Beekeeper in Western North Carolina. This will be a journal of my experiences for the coming year. I'm a very good organic gardener and a very novice beekeeper. I hope to pass along some good gardening tips and will probably scream for help with the bees.
This is my garden on the first day of 2009. It's always very sad-looking in the winter, but if I push back some of the mulch I can already see signs of life. A few daffodils are already trying to find the sun and the lenten roses are sending up new sprouts.
If you look closely in the back of the picture you can see my beehive. This is Walter Bee. My blog is dedicated to my grandfather, Walter, who taught me so much about life and gardening, although I didn't realize it until it was too late to thank him. Much more about him as time goes on.
