Hi, my name is Marc.
I am an immigrant from Germany (many, many years ago) that lives in the “Garden City” of Victoria, BC, Canada. I have been actively gardening for over 15 years, growing many vegetables, fruit and flowers.
I started off trying to garden on a patio at my first apartment I rented. When I bought my first house, I finally had an actual garden and started growing my own vegetables, fruit and flowers successfully.
A few years later when my wife and I decided to move, the unique selling point of our current house was an extensive vegetable garden, greenhouse and established fruit "orchard". We fell in love with the place and have worked on and off making small improvements. Life got very busy with the birth of our daughter in 2013 and some parts of the garden didn't get much attention.
At the start of 2017, I finally had time to focus on my garden's aesthetics more and built new cedar raised vegetable beds and compost. I put more effort into growing vegetables and we had the best year ever, eating lots of produce from our garden.
But there was one more thing that I had dreamed of doing...
In the spring of 2017, I decided to share my passion for gardening with others and started this blog Tranquil Garden.
When I needed to change my email address several years ago, firstname.lastname@example.org happened to be available through my email provider. So I grabbed it and started using it.
After my wife and I read the book Hero (affiliate link) in early 2017, I decided that I need to follow my true calling and start sharing my gardening passion with others. In early May I checked and the domain tranquilgarden.ca was available! I purchased it and setup the blog.
I've been working on adding content but between my full-time job, family and working in my garden, it's been a struggle to find time to write. But I do write when I can and aim at posting one quality post per week. Once in a while I'll throw in a shorter post with just images (1000 Words) or a quick tip or technique.
I'm also currently working on several ebooks that I will publish next year, so look for those when they are published
