not receiving my emails

Did you get my email “3 garden tips and ideas for 2019”?

I’ve learned from some readers who stay in touch often, that they’re not receiving my emails that I have recently started sending to subscribers.

As time passes, and I’m able to do more, I’ll be sending more of these emails to you that are filled with information that often will not be in any previous post on TMG.

April 4, 2019 about 12:30 PM I sent you an email with the subject line “3 garden tips and ideas for 2019”.

Nowadays, spam filters block a lot of things that you don’t want blocked and the email ends up in junk mail or the spam folder or whatever the email provider calls it.

Here’s What to Do

If you didn’t receive the email, first check your spam or junk folder.  After you locate it, move it to your inbox and add the “from email address” ( to your contact list or address book.

If that address is already in your address book, check your spam filter settings to be sure that the address (or content) isn’t blocker.

Hope this will help and that you’ll be able to receive every piece of gardening information I send.

Have a fantastic day!

  • Good to hear from you Loretta. Hope you have totally recovered from your injuries and were able to get the garden in shape for this season. I hope your harvest will be abundant!
    So glad you like the new look to TMG. Thanks for letting me know.

    Glad you are getting the emails Patricia. If you need additional help, please feel free to email me with questions. I’m glad to help if I can. Why not start by telling me what your biggest concerns are.


  • Yes, I received your helpful email. I was feeling as if I was too late to start tomato and pepper seeds but now am encouraged to go ahead and sow them.
    Your advice is extremely helpful and I know many appreciate all your efforts!
    Thank you!

  • Sad to say, I haven’t been receiving these…I followed your suggestions, but found nothing mentioned as far as “fixing” the issue.
    Love the new website!

  • Sorry, Theresa, I actually did get the email! It just showed up in my in box. My bad!

  • Theresa

    My tomato plants that are still under a grow lamp in pots are almost 20 inches tall. It is a month before I can plant them outside here in MI. but can I start putting them outside on the deck for about 3 hours a day yet? It is probably to early to harden then off, but they might use a start?


    Thank You

  • Ronda, I’m delighted you’re gonna go ahead and sow your tomato and pepper seeds! And remember – especially with tomatoes you can start them even in June in areas where warm weather lasts into August and September. Your tomatoes would just be a little late but you’d get them.

    Glad you got it Gail!

    Yes, Don – go ahead and let those 20 inch beauties enjoy all the sun they can get when temperatures are at least about 50 or 55.
    Doing that – they’ll probably be hardened off by the time you get ready to transplant — or least well on their way.

    Thanks Danita for letting me know!


  • Yes, I received your “helpful as usual” email! Living in DE, I’ve learned not to rush seed starting or planting . While the last frost date is mid-May, I wait till at least May 30 to plant in ground. Heat loving plants don’t do much until it warms up, especially night time temps. Thank you for all the information you share.

  • Glad you’re receiving them Nonna and appreciate your letting me know.
    You sure hit the target when you said, “Heat loving plants don’t do much until it warms up, especially night time temps.”
    Thanks for taking time to comment.

  • Hello There!

    Yes, I have been getting your e-mails. Thank you so much! I wanted to comment on your prior e-mail. You are so correct these days in waiting till April to plant your tomatoes and peppers. I was just saying to my 96 year old mother (an original organic gardener!) that I planted my tomatoes too early in mid-March and that next year I was planning to start all of them (peppers and tomatoes both) starting in early April. Like you, I used to start in late February, and then moved up into March, and now I feel it is best to start early April. Seems the seasons in Virginia has changed over time, with it being colder earlier in the spring but staying warmer later in the autumn. By starting in early April I feel the ground will be good and warm by May. I start all of my tomatoes and peppers inside and they grow so quickly! I am as organic as I can possibly be.
    Your articles are spot on!!!!! Sorry to say I have not kept up with your website in the last few months due to personal illness and family illnesses and a death in the family. I know you too have had a lot of “ups and downs.” Hope to keep better track of your website and postings.
    Is it better to buy your book directly from you, or is getting it from Amazon OK (I believe I saw it on Amazon, or did I?). I would want you to get the most money possible.
    Best wishes to you from Stafford, Virginia!

  • Don, thanks so much for taking time to comment. Good to hear from you.
    Appreciate your letting your fellow readers know about your experience with starting tomatoes and peppers.

    Was sorry to hear of the illness (yours and family) and the loss of a family member.
    I extend my deepest sympathy to you and yours. It’s such a hard thing to go through.

    I offer my book only through “me”. Decided not to go the “Amazon” route for various reasons.
    Appreciate your asking. Here’s the link

    Wishing you good health and a great garden.
    All my best,
