In 2007 I started this blog on gardening. I didn't know where I was going with it, or what I was really doing to begin with, but I knew I wanted to talk more about gardening with other gardeners. I was constantly talking about gardening and garden ideas with my family, and I'm sure they got tired of my incessant prattling about what plant would be good here and what design idea to put there. Ideas have never been never anything I've been short on! So I started this blog toward the end of the month of October in 2007 in order to prattle on to a larger audience. It's been over five years now. I've posted over 1,800 posts and GrowingTheHomeGarden.com has had over 900,000 visitors since July 13, 2009 (when I started tracking). That averages to over 20,000 visits per month. Pages have been viewed here over 1.7 million times. I'm really astounded and grateful for all those who have stopped by, followed the blog, or left comments. I really and truly appreciate you and everything you do to support this blog.
Where is GrowingTheHomeGarden.com going in the future? Nowhere and somewhere I hope! Going into a new year of blogging is exciting. Another year and new changes in the garden. New things to do, new projects, new gardens (don't tell my wife), new plants (also don't tell my wife ;)), and the unknown. Each year new opportunities pop up which are always fun to experience! The blogging will continue!

I hope you enjoy the changes and continue to support Growing The Home Garden as it continues into its 6th year of blogging and well into 2013! Dig in and see what we're Growing in the Home Garden!
