Everyone I met was just great. They made me feel right at home, and it was super cool to see the Epic Homestead in person. I was surprised at how big the property was. I know we can see it in the videos, but it really is an EPIC place to teach the world to grow.
Kevin was a gracious host, and I had lots of fun wandering around the homestead; I even met a few of the ladies living the coop outside and snuck a peek at Craig Pucci Johnson, too.

I thought I’d ask Chat GPT about Epic Gardening, and here was the response:
The Epic Gardening YouTube channel is a popular channel hosted by Kevin Espiritu, where he provides gardening tips, tutorials, and advice to help people grow their own plants and gardens. Kevin covers a wide range of topics related to gardening, from indoor plants to outdoor gardening, and his videos are quite informative for gardening enthusiasts.
Well Done, Chat GPT, Well Done.

About Michelle In The Meadow
I’m growing on a 1/4 acre suburban lot. I started gardening here 4 years ago and am glad you are here.
We have more than 80 individual fruit trees and shrubs and more than a dozen different kinds of annuals growing on this property. The slopes make for some interesting ways to garden, but we’re trying to make the best of it.
On the first Sunday evening of each month (7PM Eastern), I go live on YouTube sharing updates and answering your questions.
