Meet some of our featured gardeners!

Shaleena Quinlan

Shaleena grew up working in the garden with her grandmother. These are some of her favorite childhood memories. She credits the long line of midwestern farmers that passed the knowledge down to her grandmother and then her and her inherent green thumb for her talent with growing plants. Shaleena loves using her extensive gardening knowledge to help others cultivate a healthy and happy home for their plants. She also enjoys the ability to spend time researching topics and deep diving into new techniques.

What is your favorite thing to grow and why?

Herbs. I enjoy growing them because they are easy to grow outside and inside; plus, I get to use them in my cooking.

What is your must-have gardening tool?

Pruning Shears. I’m always finding things that need to be trimmed.

Number 1 tip for someone trying to start a garden?

Perseverance. Some plants are difficult to grow well, but success can happen if you keep researching and keep trying. Even if you discover that the difficult plant just doesn’t grow in your region, you will have gained some amazing gardening knowledge.

What is your favorite thing to make with homegrown produce?

Well, since herbs are my favorite thing to grow, I would say that an herbaceous tomato-based pasta sauce is my favorite thing to make.

Denine Walters

Denine loves planting a healthy and thriving garden every year; she enjoys growing a variety of fruits and vegetables, along with keeping other plants. She finds the process of watching plants grow and thrive on being incredibly rewarding, plus the produce is just as great. Denine’s love of gardening has given her extensive knowledge of my plants, and she enjoys being able to share her favorite tips and tricks so you can get the most out of your garden too.

What is your favorite thing to grow and why?

Strawberries and blueberries. I simply love the way the fruits ripen and grow. It’s very rewarding to watch these fruits flourish in a well-fertilized garden. Plus, they are super yummy to eat, too, right off the plants!

What is your must-have gardening tool?

A good set of gardening gloves, a small-scale hand rake, and a small spade. Plus, I really like my portable garden kneeler and seat – bad knees and all that, so this is a lifesaver!

Number 1 tip for someone trying to start a garden?

Start off by investigating the type of vegetables and fruits that will take to your soil type. Next, fertilize the garden bed or prepare the soil mix for a potted mix. Ensure you water the plants as needed, not according to what you think they need.

What is your favorite thing to make with homegrown produce?

A rich herby salad with fruits, leafy greens, and onion sprigs in. Or a delicious and refreshing smoothie with the fresh produce I grow in my backyard.
