Hello and welcome to Garden On!

Am I excited to move with my family from New York’s Hudson Valley to the San Francisco Bay Area? Yes!

Will I have to learn how to garden in a totally new climate, and learn to id hundreds of new plants, along with botanical names? Yes!

Where are the best nurseries? When are the plant sales? Which public gardens will become my favorites to visit again and again? And when the heck is spring?

I have a lot of questions, and I can’t wait to start figuring it all out. But mostly I can’t wait to start GARDENING.

Garden On!
