About this blog

A few years ago I started a 3 plants on my apartment balcony with a mere dream to save a few dollars on tomatoes for fresh salsa. By the following year I had garden books and a balcony covered in plants. I have been passionate about plants ever since.

As a military wife, my garden has moved with a us a few times. But wherever I go, I want to find a way to make things grow. This blog is all about my garden–wherever that is! Please follow me in my gardening journey and you might find that a little bit of greenery does your mind and body good!

Your truly,



The content on my blog is free to read and I hope will be inspiring and helpful to others. Here are the ways I am monetizing my efforts as a home business:

Affiliate Links: I participate in the Amazon Associates affiliate program because as a teaching mom and a gardener there are many products I would purchase and trust on Amazon. As I share my honest opinion and experiences with such products I use, if my recommendation brings business to Amazon (when readers click on the product links) they may pay me a small commission at no extra cost to you whatsoever. I appreciate any compensation I can receive for reviewing books, garden materials, and other products.

Teachers Pay Teachers: My free and paid lesson plans and resources for teaching children are available on TPT in my store Mission4Walls which is adjoined to my other blog http://www.mission4walls.com. It is a resource for teachers, children’s church workers, and parents.

BeneYou: I love my Jamberry Nails, Skincare, and Nutritional supplements. I love these items to nurture my health and I’m sure you will too so feel free to check it out! https://gardengalmarissa.jamberry.com/us/en/

Thank you for supporting small business and this mom who is investing in our future generation.

  1. Wonderful blog that I will enjoy following. We are moving so this summer I had to put a garden on the back-burner but I hope to have a small container garden next spring. Thanks for sharing, Allie

    1. Allie, I am so pleased you have joined me! My life of the move as a military spouse has encouraged me to learn container gardening due to yard restrictions. I’ve come to really love it!
