My Photo



My name is Chigiy. (Pronounced cha-GEE).

I’m a wife, mother of two young boys. I’m also a mosaic artist, writer, surfer, runner, martial artist, skiier, Yogini, and extremely avid gardener.

I live in the Santa Cruz Mountains, on the outskirts of the town of Los Gatos, California, the town in which I grew up.

I started the Gardener’s Anonymous blog at the urging of my friends and family, to share and swap stories. And to learn to make friends with my computer.

I learned my passion for dirt from my mom.

She inspired me throughout my life to be brave, to always look on the bright side, to do whatever a boy could do, to always have a sense of humor, and to never, never lose my ability to laugh at myself.
