I started this blog in 2010 and though it has changed over time, one thing remains true. BLOGGING IS HARD! Not that it's extremely difficult, but for a young man still working as a landscaper and antique dealer while trying to stay on top of my garden and catalogue the good (and not so good) moments for broadcasting here, it can be easy to push aside writing and social networking to focus on something else or to simply take a break.
But like spring means a fresh start for our garden, this spring means a fresh start for Hiemstra Gardens. I'm hoping to share my successes and failures here throughout this year and hopefully connect with many of you on Facebook, Twitter or elsewhere. I can't guarentee life won't get in the way once again but as my work elsewhere gets more controlled I believe I'll have the time to once again focus on something I love -- growing and sharing with you. Here's to a great growing season and a great year of blogging!
