I chose the title of this blog in honor of Doc and Katy Abraham, the hosts of “The Green Thumb,” a long running radio program on WHAM in Rochester, NY. Growing up, I listened to them every Saturday as they shared ideas, tips and solutions to problems for gardeners. In this blog I hope to share my passion for plants and gardening as well.
I have been gardening all of my life so I have a lot of successes and failures under my belt. In college I studied plant genetics and I still love the science behind growing plants. I have studied and worked in floral design so you can expect some tips on cut flowers. I also enjoy taking pictures and plan to share them here. The posts on this site will cover a range of topics: vegetables, annual and perennial flowers, herbs, houseplants, trees and shrubs, insects, diseases, propagation and more. I live in south central PA (zone 6) and the weather here will determine when I will be doing various gardening tasks.
Hope you enjoy The Green Thumb 2.0!
