Enquiring Minds Want to Know

Enquiring Minds Want to Know

I’m thinking about starting a podcast. I think I would record weekly. I want to do interviews with other gardeners and garden bloggers about the joys and challenges of organic gardening. So, I’m asking. Is this something you would listen to?

Do you listen to podcasts? If so, which?

Do you watch YouTube Videos about gardening?

What topics would you want to see covered about gardening in general?

What is the one crop you know most about?

What is the one crop you know least about?

Would you like more recipes?

Would you be interested in projects for the garden?

Would you be interested in projects for gifts from the garden?

I know this hasn’t been the most stimulating of posts, but it’s what’s on my mind today. Answer in comments or email me at

Remember, it’s not too late to get your free seeds for answering a few questions. April 1 is the deadline. Two people have gotten theirs. Will you get yours? See here

Have an informative, paisley day!~KeriAnne

These fruits and vegetables are not being grown at University, in a Botanical Garden by Master Gardeners for scientists. This is food, being grown for food, by people like you and me. To preserve food because it tastes good! I love that.

I knocked on every door USNB Beeville, TX. Those pandas were not going to save themselves. I raised $112.67, but it was 1977 so that was like 9 million dollars then, right? Now the panda has a fighting chance. Because of me and the Navy Base in Beeville, TX.

5 Things I Want to Know About You or Sunny With a Chance of Parsnips

It rained non stop for five days. After the drought we have had, let me tell you, it was glorious. I didn’t even mind getting soaked trying to run into the church building yesterday. Today dawned warm and sunny, which means I need to be out in the garden. The seedlings are going to be set out soon and there are still chores to be completed before that can happen.

So, today is all about you. I want to know five things about you. I’m always talking about me. I want to hear from you. What is your gardening story? Who are your gardening heroes? What makes you tick and what makes you sick? After you leave your comments, send me a message with the title “Paisley Parsnip Participant” to with your particulars and I’ll send you a packet of seeds. Thanks for participating, and have a Paisley day~KeriAnne
