It's a small world after all

In the last few years, because of my garden writing, I’ve had the opportunity to travel to some places I’ve never been. I get to meet some industry professionals as well as other backyard gardeners and it’s satisfying to connect with others who share this passion for growing.

We all have our “small world” stories, those circumstances where we’re hundreds of miles from home and we run into someone from our hometown, or we find out that we have a mutual friend, though the two of us have never before heard of one another.

While gardening is a widespread pastime for many, in the grand scheme of things, it’s a pretty small niche, especially when you consider those who take it to a level where it plays a part in how they make a living.
