About me

Recently bought our little spot of paradise. 2 acres in the country.

Current project

Looking forward to next year's garden. Have lots of ideas and getting a lot of info from sites such as this. Japanese beetles pretty much did me in this year ; along with the extra rain and FLOODING. Mostly out of my own ignorance . But I read and learn. Give me a library and a garden ... you won't need for anything else. LOL .. See how well I do next year whether or not that is true...
