I am so addicted to this podcast. I feel like she is a friend sitting on my back porch, drinking tea and talking. I love how she will talk about her failures along with her success. She is truly a God send! She has gotten me out of the house and back in my garden after 7 years. Thank you Jill!!

Description

Welcome to the Beginner's Garden Podcast! This is the podcast with easy-to-understand resources, tips, and information to help beginning gardeners get the most out of their gardening adventure -- big or small. When I began gardening in 2013, I scoured books and Internet resources to find all the information I could. Although good information was abundant, I had trouble understanding all the gardening lingo and sifting through the information to figure out what would work for me. In this podcast, my aim is to provide helpful information while explaining the gardening lingo as we go. I want to equip YOU to have the best start ever this gardening season!
