How this all got started...

 Hi, I’m Casey.  I am a pilot, a wife, a mom, a high desert gardener, and a wannabe farmer in Reno NV.  Gardening was certainly not my life’s ambition, nor did it come naturally to me…at all.  This journey began in Alabama, where supposedly “anyone can grow anything”, and if I had set out to grow an exorbitant number of weeds, aphids, and caterpillars with a killer horn on its head, I would have been wildly successful.  This, like many others was my first attempt at gardening, but rather than burning everything gardening related in a fury fire on top of my big dead garden, I nerded out on research and gardening books.  Fast forward 10 years later, and my front yard is full of garden beds, I have trays of microgreens growing constantly in my kitchen, and a freezer full of last summers harvest.  It has been such a cool journey to see my garden transform into something I could never have imagined 10 years ago.  I hope that I can share some of my knowledge and skills that I have acquired over the years, to make everyone’s gardening journey a little easier.
