About Me

Hi! My name is MJ.

I used to have a black thumb. Seriously. I used to even kill cacti. So I started reading… about gardening.

My background is in Biology and Chemistry.

I was planning on starting a career in Police Forensics, or just being a lab hermit somewhere, but I decided to stay home and homeschool my kids. This also allowed me lots of time (years) to research all the ways of gardening.

My approach to gardening was born of two factors: my passion for laziness and my love of experimenting. So far, I’ve had great success. I even surprised myself.

I’m sure there are others out there just like me – with little time, little patience, and little upper arm strength for “normal” gardening, but who also want to grow their own food.

I hope you enjoy what I have to share!
