My green thumb came only as a result of the mistakes I made while learning to see things from the plant’s point of view.

About Small Garden Guide

logo about image

Small Garden Guide is about helping those interested in growing a garden, but on a much smaller scale. This blog’s purpose is to help your small garden take off and thrive throughout the growing season, by providing valuable tips, information, and other related resources.

It will also identify any problems you may encounter throughout the growing season. There’s nothing more heartbreaking than watching innocent vegetable plants die slow and miserable deaths, and left wondering what in the world went wrong.

Basically, that’s just the nature of gardening. Considered both an art and a science, it’s possible to experience varying results. Successes and failures in the garden will be posted, and that’s what this blog is all about: Learning, testing, tweaking, and experimenting to help you and I grow bountiful harvests better than before.

If you’re ready to learn how to grow, maintain, and reap the harvests of your own small garden, go ahead and sign up to the free newsletter below. Whenever new content is published, you’ll be notified via email once a week.

About Jackie Williams

family about image

Me, Paula (wife), and Taji (son).

What’s up, guys! My name is Jackie Williams, the guy behind Small Garden Guide. I grew up watching my grandfather and dad till soil, grow rows of vegetables, and plant fruit trees for family and friends every growing season.

They appeared to be masters of their green thumbs, to say the least. Now with a family of my own, I’m attempting to follow in their footsteps, by starting my own garden and documenting my journey through this blog.

Web development and game programming are my high-tech interests, but as far as low-tech…gardening is where it’s at. You can find us in hot and humid Louisiana, where I currently do container gardening inside 144 square foot (12’ x 12’) of backyard space.

With so many vegetable varieties in existence, our gardens can take on many variations. Let’s see what all we can grow this season. Best wishes in all of your gardening endeavors!
