Hello and welcome. My name is Kevin, and I’ll be honest. I do not have a degree in horticulture, nor do I host a show on HGTV. My own landscaping business? Nope. Oh, and I’ve never appeared as a gardening expert on “The Martha Stewart Show.”
I’ve been told, however, that I do have a green thumb and that I’m a decent writer. Other than that, there’s a suburban yard, a potting shed, a very active imagination, years of trials and errors, and not enough time to do what I’d love to do. I enjoy weeding, working in my own yard, visiting gardens, being inspired, and talking with other gardeners and admiring the rewards of their labor.
For some time now, I’ve been wondering about how to try something different, where I can get away from “work,” and create something that would incorporate what I love to do in my free time. And this idea has grown into The Nitty Gritty Dirt Man.
My hope is for this blog to become a place to share knowledge, tell stories, and maybe even laugh along the way. I hope you enjoy it.
