John P. Schulz.
In working on a platform for this blog, I looked at my interests and talents. I am a very good story teller, I am a landscape artist (designing and planting, not painting), I am a writer and an award winning author. In putting all of this together I realized that most of my stories come from my profession. I meet a lot of wonderful people and spend some time with them working on their projects and getting to know their likes and dislikes.
I also work with laborers, equipment operators, truck drivers, and other people who spend their time getting things done. These are productive people who generally take pride in their work.
I spent a number of years as a commercial plant grower and I know a lot about the subject. I also try to learn something new about plants every day. Lots of people ask me about plants, plant culture, and other related subjects. I find myself answering the same questions over and over. I pay attention to these questions and I would like to provide the answers to questions that you have and to answer some that you never thought of.
I plan to mix stories from the job and from other experiences in the north Georgia foothills with information and techniques that you will find useful in your gardening experiences.
So you don’t know what you will get, but I guarantee that it will be informative and interesting. A lot of it will be funny.
You may also find further adventures of John the Plant Man by reading the book he narrated, REQUIEM FOR A REDNECK. This book won the Independent Publisher’s Book Award (IPPY) for “best regional fiction-South” in 2009. It is a great read.
