Please excuse this non-garden (kinda) related post. I have to take a moment and thank my friend Melanie. Not only has she put up with me, (SINCE 3RD GRADE!!!!) she is also responsible for the perfect name of my blog.
Those of you who know me (that's all of you reading this right now) know that I am a HUGE NERD. I prefer reading to almost all other things. I like to learn, and pass on my nerdy knowledge.
Melanie... dear, sweet, poor Melanie has endured and loved my nerdy self through so many years. When the time came to name this blog, I turned to her. After a short while of trading names and fantastic (but taken) ideas back and forth, she struck gold. The gardenerd. That's me in a nutshell. =) She is also responsible for taking this blog from an idea I was tossing around, to a reality. She convinced me, as good friends do, that if all else failed, SHE would read my blog.
Thanks, Mel. I can't imagine my life in the past, present, or future without you.
