The Garden Shed- Who We Are

We — the writers of The Garden Shed — would like to introduce ourselves and our new, free online community newsletter. We are members of the Piedmont Master Gardeners, which simply means we have all been trained to share the scientific expertise of Virginia Tech and the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service. More important, we are your friends and neighbors with a passion for gardening – and learning more about it. Each month we will communicate the tasks that we are performing in our ornamental gardens, edible gardens and lawns. Each month’s newsletter will also contain a featured topic, ranging from growing roses to preventing pests and diseases in your vegetable garden, plus a recipe for something fresh from the garden.

While you are visiting The Garden Shed we hope you will take a moment and tell us how we are doing. We would like to know if you find the articles helpful to you or do you need more detail? Are the articles too long or short or too technical?   Did we make any blunders? Do you have a suggestion? Are there, topics that you would like see in the future?    Please take time to share and email your comments (the good and the bad), your experiences, your photos and your recipes. You may email your comments to garden-shed@piedmonmastergardeners.org.

We are looking forward to seeing you next month in The Garden Shed. Please invite your friends and neighbors to The Garden Shed for a visit!
