About Us

Hi, I’m Robin, the garden coach at Windy Gardens. I have a wonderful husband who is a chef, two great kids, two cute dogs, and a huge raised-bed veggie garden. And always lots of tomatoes.

Not too long ago, I was afraid of trying to grow any kind of plant because they always died. Then I started learning about how to grow vegetables and I want to share everything I’ve learned with you so you don’t have to spend time searching how all by yourself.

My mission is simple: I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn about gardening. I promise to show you how to confidently choose and grow any vegetables! And how to use the Farmer’s Almanac resources to help you.

I’m here to help guide you with growing your own vegetable gardens. I want you to feel comfortable playing in the dirt.

I write about so many varied gardening topics like the different types of soil, how to build a compost pile, how to decorate your house inside and out for fall, what to do to get your gardens ready for winter to make spring easier for you, and even how to grow veggies in pots. You will find everything you are looking for in the gardening world here!

How we can help you grow more vegetables

Beginner gardeners are new to gardening and don’t know where to start. It can be overwhelming when you start to look around at all of the information that is available. Where to start? You need some garden coaching!

You CAN do it, brown thumb or not. I will teach you about the basics such as soil preparation, plant selection, planting techniques, and maintenance. You will begin to feel comfortable in the garden. And there is nowhere better to be!
