Hi, I’m Pamela
I am so glad to meet you. Won’t you join me in the garden?
I love to share all the garden doings, tips and tricks and experience I have gained over the past 40 years working in the dirt.
I learned my garden lessons the hard way, by hands-on experience and extensive research. Some things failed while others flourished. I share here the knowledge I have gained and what I am now learning.

Back in 1997, I started a website called Backwoods Cottage where I sold my hand painted signs and made it to #1 on Google for hand painted custom signs.
The orders were tremendous and it was a great way to make some extra money but it became so much that I got burned out.
In 2008 I decided to start journaling via this blog our work on our little mountain cottage and gardens. Flower Patch Farmhouse was born.
Over the years, I have steered it more toward the garden as that is what my readers have asked for. I have learned a lot via Master Gardening info, horticulturist friends, and the agronomists I consult with.
My sweet little Primrose Cottage, shown here, is still where I paint and create. You can find my free painting tutorials over at Pamela Groppe Art!
