Late Bloomer Show has moved! It is no longer hosted by WordPress. Late Bloomer Show is now a full-service website, and I invite you all to come, visit, look around and download my FREE e-book, “10 Steps to a Great First Garden!”

Kaye's Late Bloomer E-Book

Kaye’s new e-book, “10 Steps to a Great First Garden” FREE at http://latebloomershow.com/

18 pages of my colorful photos of veggies and critters, links, resources, and LBL’s, aka Late Bloomer Lessons, “10 Steps to a Great First Garden” is everything I’ve learned about growing food in my first year of gardening, distilled into one convenient downloadable PDF. All I need is your name and email address! Get it now!

I’ve been so busy since January with Season 2 of my web show “Late Bloomer” as well as writing this e-book, creating a new website, not to mention finishing up my winter garden and planting my summer garden, that it did not hit me till just now when I got a new follower on my old blog, that my old blog was even still out there, and more importantly, that my old followers have not found their way to my new site! Have no fear, every one of my original blog posts made the trip to the new website, and now all my “Late Bloomer” episodes are right there on my new site, as well!

Late Bloomer Show is now on Pinterest, Google+ and I’m having daily fun with Instagram. If all that wasn’t enough to keep me busy, Late Bloomer had it’s one-year anniversary last Monday, April 22, Earth Day! I celebrated by uploading my 25th episode of Late Bloomer! “Late Bloomer at Tomatomania!”

I welcome you to look around the new site. Please send me your feedback. Let me know you are still there! There are lots of exciting things to share with all of you. “Late Bloomer” will be hitting the road and filming episodes in Middle Tennessee next month! To receive my blogs and web show updates now, just fill in your name and email address at Late Bloomer Show and download my free e-book! Constructive comments are always welcome, and remember, it’s never too late to start growing vegetables!

One Mo’ Time! I won’t be posting to this blog anymore. All articles will be at http://latebloomershow.com/ Visit, sign up. I hope to see you there! And happy gardening! – Kaye

Cold, wet days drive Kaye inside. Good thing the garden is planted. But, you have to venture out once in a while to thin seedlings, deal with pests and encounter wildlife. Check out Season 2, Episode 2 of “Late Bloomer,” “Maintaining the Winter Garden.”

Please Like and Share and Comment! Thank you! – Kaye

Please watch and share Season 2, Episode 1 of “Late Bloomer,” “Planting the Winter Garden.” Featuring the original guitar composition of “Late Bloomer’s” new composer, guitar man Jon Pileggi. I’m very excited to add Jon to our lean and creative Late Bloomer team!

I’ve been busy planting a garden, making Late Bloomer episodes, creating an e-book “The Late Bloomer Show’s 10 Steps for a Great, First Garden,” redoing my website, and dealing with my sprained ankle and all the other stuff of life. Sorry I haven’t been blogging lately, but I will get back to it very soon! Are you able to grow food in the winter? Thanks for stopping by! – Kaye

P.S. Did you watch the Super Bowl? My American Airlines commercial ran during the game. I play a waitress. I’d love to know if you see it. Thanks!

I’m from the South, and there’s nothing I love more than corn, tomatoes and watermelon. I knew if I had a garden I had to grow all three. You’ve seen my tomato episode. Please watch and share “Kaye’s Watermelon Story” – Episode 19. Since I only had a 6’x6′ space, I had to grow baby watermelons.

If I had it to do over again, knowing what I know now, I would grow them in raised beds with trellises to save space. Hope you enjoy my little tale! – Kaye

My tomato episode is online, and I would love for you to watch it and share with friends. It was a long time coming, because, I kept waiting for my tomatoes to finish for this season, but, it’s November 3, and I’ve still got tomatoes growing! Click here, or for better quality, watch on YouTube.

I grow tomatoes for the first time in my first ever, organic urban front yard garden, with guest, James Kenney, wildlife photographer and expert tomato grower! And Linden the Cat makes an appearance.

Thanks for watching! – Kaye

Check out the latest episode of “Late Bloomer.” I go a little mad growing zucchini! Watch here on in high resolution on YouTube.

Thanks for watching! Please share! – Kaye

In this episode, I visit Loree Bryer, citizen scientist for the Monarch Butterfly in her milkweed habitat garden in Mar Vista, California. Come see what we discover on this day in late June. View here or in high resolution on YouTube.

Thanks for watching! – Kaye

If you haven’t seen Episode 15 of Late Bloomer, please watch! I get out of my little garden and visit a big garden! 🙂 Thanks!

Kaye visits organic, sustainable Wild Farm in Woodside, California on a windy day in late June, 2012. Owners, and master gardeners, sisters Lisa and Kathleen Putnam give Kaye a fast-paced tour of their large, family farm. Please watch here, or high quality on YouTube.

“Maxine the Chicken,” set to motion by Late Bloomer motion graphics wizard, Mika Tanisaki, makes her first appearance at the end. Maxine lays a lot of eggs, but sometimes she gets a little distracted and loses track of an egg.

There’s no way to do justice to Wild Farm’s orchard, large gardens, chicken run, compost and bee operation in a short episode, and there were whole sections of the garden we didn’t get to, but what you see will inspire, as it did me!

Lisa said she hand-watered her garden for two years, and she recommends hand-watering especially for beginning gardeners, as you really connect with…

“Maxine the Chicken,” set to motion by Late Bloomer motion graphics wizard, Mika Tanisaki, makes her first appearance at the end. Maxine lays a lot of eggs, but sometimes she gets a little distracted and loses track of an egg.

There’s no way to do justice to Wild Farm’s orchard, large gardens, chicken run, compost and bee operation in a short episode, and there were whole sections of the garden we didn’t get to, but what you see will inspire, as it did me!

Lisa said she hand-watered her garden for two years, and she recommends hand-watering especially for beginning gardeners, as you really connect with your garden that way. I am hand-watering, but my garden is tiny by comparison. She also said it’s not too late for late bloomers to be successful gardeners, and to think big, especially about your soil food web.

I also got to see one of the beneficial insects they attract with their insectiary, a hover fly, and Kathleen showed me a leaf full of live aphids,

and a leaf full of dead aphids that the beneficials had gotten to.

You’ll hear in the episode that July is the month for coastal climate gardeners (like me) to seed for fall crops, so I better get started! She also recommended a complete resource for coastal gardeners, Golden Gate Gardening by Pam Peirce, which I am happily reading. Thanks for watching, and please share! – Kaye

Kaye gets out of her front yard garden for a little inspiration, and visits beautiful Woodside, California. In this episode, she checks out the Woodside Library California Native Plant Garden and the Woodside Elementary School garden. With guest, teacher Brian Myrtetus.
