Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Home Gardener.
This site is dedicated to home gardeners everywhere who plan, dream, and work very hard in their chosen garden areas. We are long time gardeners here at our family farm, Grand Point Farms. Our farm is located in the upper foothills on the North side of the Olympic Mountains. From the North pasture, on a clear day, we can look across the Straits into Southern Canada.
We have worked in clay, sand, rocky and fine loam soils. Each has demanded hard work, sweat, and getting a sore spot somewhere on our bodies. But, the rewards have been and are always lots of potatoes, corn, and a variety of great vegetables, fruit, berries, nuts, lovely flowers, a beautiful lawn, fresh fish and some great trees.
One of our favorite resting areas is beside a giant basalt boulder that is among a grove of tall, huge, and ancient Fir and Cedar trees. In this forest grove, winding around the basalt boulder, is a clear cold mountain creek. We rest beside this bubbling mountain creek as it makes it's way over and between the granite boulders and rocks as it's makes it's way around the basalt boulders along the edge of the creek. This is a quiet comfortable place to relax, kick back, have a bite to eat, and enjoy ourselves when the immediate work is done.

This web site, for home gardeners, is a place to shop for some of your gardening tools and equipment, garden supplies, gardening books and information, gardening answers and needs. We cover growing vegetables at home, vegetable gardening, organic gardening, soil fertility, plant propagation, growing vegetables and flowers, indoor plants, ornamental plants, lawns, shrubbery, mushrooms, strawberries, berry bushs, cherry and apple trees, nut and shade trees. And of course, greenhouses, fencing, gates, lawn and garden furniture, garden statues and ornaments.

We particularly like to offer books, magazines, informational articles and/or links on how-to make things yourself.
For our current list of fact sheets and articles, please click on Gardening Information .
Our emphasis will be on Pacific Northwest gardening. Our maritime climate in the western foothills and lowlands presents a unique kind of challenge to home gardeners. The Pacific Ocean, and the Puget Sound while moderating our weather, combinations with our surrounding mountains to cause our weather to change quickly.
But, then because of our latitude, we can receive up to eighteen hours of daylight and sunlight during the summer months. Gardens, field crops, and fruit and nut orchards generally grow really well during our summers. However, even then sometimes we get too much rain, or that pesky late or early frost or freeze.
However, the drier and colder eastern interior and the higher mountain valley areas throughout the region present quite a different challenge to the home gardener.
Our gardening techniques and recommended gardening related books and magazines, gardening tools and equipment, growing information, and gardening links, can also be applied to many other parts of the earth with similiar growing conditions as ours.
Here we will try to answer your gardening questions, post gardening web links, suggest books to read, and post articles of interest.
