Hi, I'm Jill, and I grow a successful backyard garden year after year.

But it wasn't always that way.

Not too long ago I was a beginning gardener with no idea how to do the most basic tasks -- and I got really overwhelmed in the details of garden planning. But because I was determined, I spent hours in research preparing for my first garden.

And each year after that first successful garden, I've learned more and more -- this time also from the dirt on my hands instead of from the pages of books alone. 

Now, I teach other beginning gardeners -- just like me -- how to plan and grow their own successful gardens. 

After you grab the free 7-day plan on this page, I'll send you each step by email. Once you've completed the 7 days, I'll share more about my own journey and will send you more free resources to help you on yours.
