The Millennial Gardener

This channel is dedicated to my love of gardening.  I live in southeastern, coastal North Carolina, just southwest of Wilmington in humid subtropical Zone 8a, latitude 34°10'39" N (34.17N).


Growing up in south Jersey, my father and grandfather both had gardens.  As a child, I used to help them plant seedlings and pick vegetables.  As a teen, I worked on a local farm.  After college, I lived in Philadelphia, so I had to garden out of buckets.  My love for all things outdoors has taken me to the south where land is more plentiful, growing seasons are long and winters mild, but with a few deep freezes in the mid-to-low teens annually that make my hardiness zone a real challenge.

I am a zone pusher.  In this channel, I will grow a lot of the common edible annuals we all know and love, but I will also grow many things that "you can't grow" in Zone 8a.  I am young and have a long journey ahead of me with a lot more to learn, and I invite you along for the ride with me.
