About The Backyard Bloom

Hi, my name is Josie, and I’ve been an avid backyard gardening hobbiest for several years now.

My love of gardening began when I decided one day that I had never been taught how to grow my own food, and I figured it would probably be a good skill to have.

I began with the easy essentials of any backyard garden, tomatoes and squash.

Since then, each year my garden gets bigger as we section off more of our yard to grow food, to the delight of my husband. He has determined this is a good thing as it is less grass he has to mow.

I began TheBackyardBloom.com to help others find information on how to grow their own foods in their backyards and enjoy this great pastime I’ve come to love.
