We had a lot of fun at the OKC Home & Garden show last weekend! We went there to help spread the word about the app, to get kids interested in gardening, and to help inspire people to start growing food.

Last weekend clarified the biggest challenges facing new gardeners and helped me focus my attention on the most important problems.
