Purchased a grafted hass avocado a week ago and it is still not in the ground! I hope to get the soil ready today and get the plant going! Yumm...

I received my letter yesterday from the Cooperative Extension Service stating my acceptance into the Spring 2010 Master Gardener program. We start February 18 and finish class work in mid April. Certification requires 40hrs of volunteer work, 20 of which are on the phone banks.

I first saw this vertical gardening concept in Sunset Magazine while visiting my sister in Arizona. I love it! Since then I have found the blog of the woman who was featured in Sunset mag. I hope to try this concept someday soon. I like to call it garden art. However, looks like it I will need a billion succulents! Just kidding, I will start small LOL. But, where to get the succulents in volume? Well, try Mountain Crest Gardens. I made a small order recently because they had "free shipping" to even Hawaii. I was very happy with the order and they gave me two bonus plants!

I am starting this blog to chronicle my journey through the Hawaii County Master Gardener program. I first heard about the National Master Gardeners from Ellen, my friend in Arizona. She is an Arizona MG as well as a degreed horticulturist from Arizona State University. And a long time friend. She inspired me to seek additional gardening experience while I lived in Arizona for over 27 years. I loved gardening in Arizona because it had three planting seasons, unlike my New England roots!
I began my gardening experience as a young child in Durhamville, New York. We moved to the country and our neighbors had a home garden and many fruit trees. It was only natural that our family join the home gardening fun!
Since moving to Hawaii in 2007, I have started landscape planting for our new house. And the Master Gardener program came to light again from a new friend Laureen. She recommended I submit an application to the Hawaii County program and I did. Hence the birth of this blog!!! I hope I get in...
