"Possibility and promise greet me each day as I walk out into my garden. My vigor is renewed when I breathe in the earthiness and feel the dirt between my fingers. My garden is a peaceful spot to refresh my soul." Meems

Hoe and Shovel on Facebook

Hoe and Shovel garden has started a Facebook page. We've got some new friends there but not nearly as many as our readership indicates. This is my invitation to all regular commenters and readers to join us for informal discussions on Hoe and Shovel's page.

It's a place where we'll offer tidbits from everyday life from around the garden ... nitty-gritty stuff and insignificant goings on. We'd love for you to join in on the discussion. So head over there and click the LIKE button to connect.

Of course for those of you who prefer to eaves drop (you know who you are) ~~ you are also welcome. It's a public page and snooping is allowed. But wouldn't it be so much more fun if you came right on in, took a seat, and told us what's going in your garden, too.

Hope to see you over there. (Hoe and Shovel blog will continue~~FB page won't take the place of the blog.)
Happy Gardening,


  1. I rarely get on FB. I hope you continue your blog. Have fun.

  2. Lisa,
    Hoe and Shovel isn't moving...I'll still be blogging. FB will be an additional medium for Hoe and Shovel where I'll post the mundane and everyday stuff of the garden occasionally. Don't worry... I'll probably not run out of things to say here or there. *sigh*

  3. So glad to know Facebook won't replace the blog since I tend to avoid the FB.

  4. It's nice to be getting a double dose of Hoe and Shovel.

    Enjoying the FB page Meems!

    If you all do FaceBook...join us. We'll be waiting for you.

  5. I don't visit FB either. I hope you do well there and don't lose too much of your private info.

    I'll continue to check in with you right here. I so enjoy reading about your FL gardens.


  6. Kelly, FlowerLady,
    Facebook isn't for everybody ... Hoe and Shovel blog will remain my central focus for sharing the garden. I'm glad to know you'll continue to hang out here.

    Siesta Sister,
    It's been fun sharing some of the daily activities of Hoe and Shovel and the interaction with other gardeners in more real-time! Thanks as always for joining in.

  7. I'm glad to see that the blog will still be here. I don't FaceBook...
    Enjoy your new venture!

  8. Guess I'm one of your rare readers who does enjoy facebook. Have reconnected with a lot of old friends. Hope this is a great new avenue for everyone to share our love of gardening in Central Florida. LOL

  9. Daisy,
    Not going anywhere. Look forward to seeing you here.

    FB works for some and not for some... I'm happy you'll be connecting with us there and here. Thank you for the comment.

  10. I enjoy "eavesdropping" but will chime in on FB sometimes. There is never enough to read about Florida gardening and I am happy to have more to read about Hoe and Shovel's doings.

  11. Kay,
    You are always welcome to snoop or speak! (((hugs)))

  12. I enjoy visiting everywhere there is anything about gardening, so I WILL be stoping by:)


Have a blessed day,
