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 Farm. Our farm is located in the upper foothills on the North side of the Olympic Mountains in Washington State. From the North pasture, on a clear day, we can look across the Strait of Juan de Fuca into Southwestern Canada. We have worked in clay, sand, rocky and fine loam soils. Each soil type 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, fields of grains, fruit, berries, nuts, mushrooms, lovely flowers, a beautiful lawn, fresh fish and some great trees.

This website, for home gardeners, with livestock, is a place to shop for some of your gardening and livestock books, farming equipment, and farming magazine subscriptions, gardening tools and equipment, garden supplies, gardening information, and answers to questions. We cover growing vegetable gardening at home, raising and caring for our livestock, organic gardening, soil fertility, and plant propagation. We cover growing potatoes, fields of corn and grain, hayfields, and growing berries and mushrooms, nut trees, and fruit trees. And of course, we cover building and using greenhouses and cold frames, horse and dairy barns, and chicken coops, rabbit hutches, pig pens, duck coops, and pheasant coops. 

We particularly like to offer books, tools, equipment, and magazine informational articles and/or links on how-to make or do things yourself. We offer practical, hands-on instructions designed to help you learn how to master dozens of country living skills quickly and easily.
For our current list of fact sheets and articles, please click on Gardening Information .

Our emphasis will be on Pacific Northwest gardening and farming. Our maritime climate in the western foothills and lowlands presents a unique kind of challenge to home gardeners and farmers. The Pacific Ocean, and the Puget Sound while moderating our weather, works 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. Vegetable gardens, field grain crops, berries, 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.

What is Aquaponic Gardening?

Aquaponics is a cultivation of fish and plants together in a constructed, recirculating ecosystem utilizing natural bacterial cycles to convert fish waste to plant nutrients. This is an environmentally friendly, natural food-growing method that harnesses the best attributes of aquaculture and hydroponics without the need to discard any water or filtrate or add chemical fertilizers.
