Hi, I’m Darren Pearce and I remember feeling frustrated when I started growing food on my own and in a completely different environment from what I grew up with.
I learned at a young age from my father and grandfathers the importance of healthy soil, choosing the right vegetable varieties and how to tend and protect them from pests and disease.
Somehow though, it felt foreign when I started my own garden. Trying new things for the first time and sometimes in a completely different climate felt like an uphill battle. But the basic foundations remained the same.
I understand how you feel starting a garden for the first time or maybe even in a new location and conditions.
