grammieo is the “Weekend Gardener” Contributor on Squidoo

mom2Today we’re happy to introduce you to  grammieo. She’s our “Weekend Gardener” Contributor on Squidoo.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
I’m the Weekend Gardener Contributor. It’s very appropriate, because at 60 I just started working full-time and have been relegated to becoming a weekender! We will see how that pans out. I expect I will be spending not only weekends in my garden, but also week nights, until the moon comes up!

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
I have loved gardening since I was a child. My parent’s always had the most incredible vegetable garden. We got to help with the chores in the garden and I didn’t mind, rather I enjoyed every minute. My sister and I would hunt for ladybugs when we got tired of the “work”, little did we know then, that my father was really pleased about that. More ladybugs in the garden = less pests. It was a win-win situation.

Who had the most influence in your life? Musician, Crafter, Author?
I would have to say crafter, my mother was a designer/dressmaker and as I grew up, I joined her! We had our own business for over 35 years. So when I wasn’t in the garden, I was creating other beautiful things with fabric, beads, sequins and such…

    I grew up in my dad’s vegetable garden. It was a wonderful experience that has stayed with me my entire life. My partner does most of the gardening around our home/office and I help out on the weekends now. I am looking forward to hearing your adventures in how to have a bountiful garden without spending much time tending it. Congratulations on being selected the Weekend Gardener contributor!

    When I was child on the farm we had hugh vegetable gardens. We’d eat lots but sell some along with our apples we grew. I think a little weekend gardening would be fun. Welcome and congrats!

    Good timing as perennials are poking out here already. This is a great reminder to get my garden plans in order as in zone 9 we get to start early. I look forward to your gardening stories Grammieo.

    I love gardening too -but I’m useless at it! The UK is crammed with some of the most beautiful gardens in the world and we have the Chelsea Flower Show, Gardenrs Question Time on Radio – but none of it has rubbed off on me :( I’m sure this niches is going to be a great success.
