Winners in the garden 2012

I want to thank you for all the nice comments and feedback from my blog this year.  Thank you Shawna Coronado for the tool you designed for DeWit Tools for the contest give a way.  Congratulations to Jeavonna Chapman, who won the tool.

There were some amazing moments in the garden this year.  My orchids bloomed like never before, since I fertilized them more often and moved them to get the proper light in the garden.

I started a garden/landscape/food channel on YouTube and it has been a great success.  Thank you so much for all your views and comments.  I still cant believe there have been thirty four thousand views already.  While working 14 hours days, blogging and social networking weekdays, and filming the videos and writing for, it has been a super busy year.  Here is one of the videos.  Please subscribe for free.

I tried to make them fun, informative, fast and unique.  Living in the sub tropics has its advantages.  I grew up in New Jersey and moved to Florida while in school.  I consider myself a student of horticulture.  There is always something new to learn.

My book I have been writing for three years took a back seat.  Goals for the new year include finishing the book.  I wish you all the best for the upcoming year and I hope you too will reach your goals.
