Genie (Who sometimes likes baseball even more than gardening...)My name is Genie. I was born in Washington D.C. While there are plenty of people in the D.C. area with a penchant for gardening, I was not one of those people. I either over-watered or under-watered, and next thing I knew, whatever green thing I tried to coax along into healthy existence had withered and died.

In September 2005, I moved to Iowa City. In April 2006, I decided to overcome my black thumb heritage and plant some herbs in a couple of pots. Next thing I knew, I had a garden.

In May 2008, I said goodbye to my Iowa City garden plot and headed even further West: to Oakland, California, where the farmer’s markets run year-round. Urban gardening is the next challenge in my list of garden experiences.

Let’s just say this: apparently, it’s amazing what I’ll do for a good tomato.
