Garden Blogs


Whether you are a hobbyist or a professional, if you provide content on a blog that is relevant for Utahns and others in the Intermountain West, we want to feature you here as either  a guest poster or as a linked blog .  There is no compensation involved for you OR us- just gardeners doing what they do best, sharing the  harvest, even if it is a virtual one!  

Are you a home improvements/projects blogger who includes gardening as a significant portion of your blog? YOU qualify to be listed here too. 

Join our efforts to improve the connectivity of the gardening community. Do you have a question you’d like to have answered by our experts (and someday experts?) e-mail us or follow these links to blogs where you can ask. Let’s help everyone learn how to grow the “plants that thrive in the ‘hive”.

    This blog summarizes experiences of two first time gardeners. My wife and I are attempting a mostly-indoor container vegetable garden and a garden plot at a community garden. I have been volunteering for and learning from the nice people at Wasatch Community Gardens. Our good friend, an awesome Utah extension agent, also helps us.
    I am geologist in Salt Lake City and my wife works at the Whole Foods Market.
    We both love to cook and we blog about that, too:
