Welcome to Friends with Gardens!

My name is Jim - I am the site owner. I live in Port Orchard, Washington and I have been gardening my entire life. My favorite thing about gardening is that we all - each and every one of us - have friends with gardens! As much as I love working my own soil and doting over every one of my plants and rows, I enjoy seeing the work of others, as well. I am the first to admit that I don't know everything there is to know about gardening, and I always pay keen attention when a peer shares something they have learned along the way.

I started this site as a way to chart my own progress and to keep my own records year after year. Recently, I've expanded it so that you can do the same and, along the way, we can all celebrate our successes and learn from each other.

This is a public site but every precaution is being taken to keep the site free from spammers and bots. I want to make sure this is a useful tool so that you will feel comfortable here.

Please sign up today and join this community! Post often and comment freely. We are all in this together and by forming a community here, we can provide a valuable resource for others who are only now developing an interest in gardening and sustainable living.

Please feel free to email me at any time with suggestions or comments.

Thank you,
Jim W. Coleman
