Dave’s Garden people are the best!

Dave’s Garden people are the best! Howie and I have known this for a long time, since 2001 as a matter of fact. When Howie had his life-changing back surgery at Johns Hopkins in 2006, it was DG people who buoyed our spirits in the forums during theĀ  months leading up to his surgery and for months afterward. It was DG friends who took us into their Maryland home like family while he recovered. It was DG people who watched a continuing thread I updated right from the waiting room while he had his surgery. It’s a stellar group of people there. It’s family.

Today, I learned of another member, Tracy Pruitt, aka aggiegrl, who witnessed this kind of community support this month. In response to her post regarding her family having to vacate their rental home, she witnessed gardeners arriving at her home from all around Texas, all to help her move her beloved garden. The story was picked up by NPR and All Things Considered aired a story about it. Go give it a listen. It’ll do your heart good.

It makes sense that the people at a gardening website would be nurturing, giving people. A true gardener loves to share!

  1. Hi there Gardenwife,

    I remember this story well, great story it is.
    Like so many others I followed the story, your every post!

    I had to leave DG because money got a little tight. Also let my gardens lay one
    year. Lol; Only one year though.

    Finally found out cancer was causing my problems. Not so bad as it might sound.
    I have Lymphoma, it had spread; But its treatable!

    My next treatment, chemo therapy is next Monday. My third.
    Each time so far I’ve felt so much better.

    The world is a beautiful place!

  2. Dave’s Garden!! I endorse every word you have said, Gardenwife. DG, as it is popularly addressed, is one of the best things that have happened in my life as well. That ‘happened’ in 2001.
