For the past decade I've been growing almost all of the vegetables I eat throughout the year. I do it in one of the most difficult to garden places; a community garden that's been organic for over 30 years. 😆
If there's a rare pest that most gardeners have only heard of - I've probably pulled it out of my hair at least once.
Ditto for diseases. I can also teach you about growing chickens, monarchs and flowers.
I've written about vegetable gardening for The Old Farmer's Almanac, Canadian Gardening and more.
