My First Blog Post!
Updated: May 16, 2021
I'm super excited to share my love of gardening and help others experience the joy of growing their own vegetables! I've been gardening for 25 years and have learned a lot along the way. I plan to share tips and ideas for planting a successful vegetable garden. I enjoy growing many different types of vegetables and love trying new varieties from both hybrid and heirloom seeds.
As many of my friends know, I've been starting my veggies from seed for several year. I have shared the extra plants with them for free and I love to do it. This year I've taken things to the next level and am selling my baby plants to anyone who is able to pick them up from my home in Pleasant Hill. I'll feature photos and available varieties on my new website. These plants have been grown and nurtured in my home and I will offer a 1 week money-back guarantee, so if they don't survive the transplanting process you'll get a refund, no questions asked!
My passion for home gardening was passed on to me from my dad, Jim Waltrip. He spent his entire career in the vegetable seed business, with Northrup King, Gurneys Seed & Nursery, and Petoseed/ Seminis Vegetable Seeds. He made a lot of friends and business colleagues over the years who have told me about his success and knowledge of the industry. I'll be sharing more about his storied career in future posts.
Well thanks for reading and I look forward to connecting with you again soon!!
