Welcome to Matgardener95
Who we are? What are our goals? How long do I spend in my garden? These are all questions that will be discussed in this blog.
My name is Mathieu, and gardening is my passion. Since a young age, I always had a passion for the environment. I went to university to study the environment. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of jobs in the area where I live. For sure there are several jobs in the big cities or in the North. On the other hand, I'm not a city guy and I didn't want to be far away from my family. In addition, I had a life partner, who is now my wife, and we lived in a small village. So, I changed the direction of my career because family is more important to me.
I want to share my knowledge and touch the field of the environment. That's why I started Matgarderner95 to inspire people about the environment and help them with their gardens. Behind me, there is my wife who helps me a lot in this project. We have a 9-month-old daughter.
The goals I would like to achieve is to educate people about gardening through my blogs that I post once a week every Wednesday. On this website, I will publish guides on gardening, technics, and my experiences. I would also like to help people with their problem and see their success in the garden. That's why we have a Facebook and Instagram page that everyone can follow and send us their questions or share their experience.
How long do I spend in my garden? I try to keep a good routine in the garden by starting my day around 7:00 am. I spend about 30-45 min and then I go to work. After my work around 4:30 pm I go to my garden. I look at the progress that has been made during the day, because in a day there is often a lot of progress. I spend about 1 hour to 1:30, maintaining my garden. Adding ropes so that my peas can grow in height. Removed the larger weeds. After supper just before sunset, I water my garden and write down in a notebook what to do in my garden for the next day. On weekends, I also get up around 7 a.m. and spend around 3 hours. I weed, re-sow, so I can have several successions. I make repairs or add landscaping in the garden so that I can add other vegetables or to maintain them and make them more prosperous.
As you can see, garden requires a lot of hours. Several jobs to be done. That's why I started Matgardener95 to help you with this passion. To help to be more efficient, have a better harvest and be less discouraged when the unexpected happens. Follow us in our adventure through my Facebook, Instagram or on this website. We look forward to meeting you and discussing with you!
