Tips, tricks and failures at Pig Dog Farms.
My first memory of gardens goes way, way back. My great-grandma had a beautiful flower garden in her backyard. I remember running through, stopping to smell the flowers, and then heading over to my friend’s house for some red hot candies. My second memory of gardens is also a long-ago memory. My grandma in WyomingContinue reading “Gardening: A History”
When I started this blog, the Facebook page and the @pigdogfarm Instagram account, I knew I’d be sharing with people I know. My mom, sister, best friend, husband and mother-in-law are my biggest fans and I love that. I also hoped to find some new friends along the way. But, I never expected to walkContinue reading “For the love of a gardening community”
Remember back to March 2020 when a little thing called coronavirus shut everyone up in their homes…and then those people had to find things to do? In that moment, everyone became a baker. Cookies, cakes, scones…and sourdough bread. People were baking so much that flour (especially good flour like from King Arthur Baking Company) becameContinue reading “Sourdough…sour what??!!”
Gardening is not without bugs – of many kinds. As I have written before, I do like most bugs. I love butterflies, bees, assassin bugs, spiders, dragonflies and other pollinators.

Fall is coming!!! Spread the word. The summer heat is almost over for us here in South Carolina – or it will be in about a month in a half…hopefully. Since I usually start planning the Spring and Summer garden when January and February roll around – it is only natural for me to planContinue reading “Fall garden plan – 2020”
As a gardener, you’re never alone. Not only are there millions of gardeners and farmers worldwide from whom to learn, there are also the friends in the garden…all around you. These are the pollinators and the garden helpers that make vegetables, fruits and flowers grow. In our garden, we have many “friends” who help meContinue reading “We’re not alone in the garden…”

Spring and Summer 2020 has been a whirlwind – not only for me, but for the world. Coronavirus left all of us with more time at home and for me – that means a ton more time in the garden. I started the spring with high hopes. I started tomatoes, swiss chard, zucchini, peppers, tomatillos,Continue reading “Summer 2020 garden”
There once was a dog named Pig. He was what is known as a Valley Bulldog, which is an English Bulldog/Boxer mix. He was a very happy boy, who went on many adventures during his 11 and a half years. But, he also had many obstacles to overcome. You see, he had hemophilia – aContinue reading “How did Pig Dog Farm come to be?”
