About me

I've been inspired by several matronly women in my life but I've never stayed put long enough to see the fruits of my labor. I feel good about leaving each place better, but I've missed out on the life cycles of perennials. Also, I was invited to walk a few acres of pristine, virtually untouched north woods forest (privately owned forever and then deeded to a conservancy) and I met a beech tree that just changed me.

Current project

Staying put.

Type of gardener

anything, veg, annual, perrenial, tree, bush, houseplant, etc.

Favorite garden activity

Help! The Invincibelle Hydrangea I planted last fall was doing beautifully until the yard was treated for broadleaf. It's still alive but the tips with newest growth are very wilted and maybe dying! What should I do?

I am curious about your blueberry bushes! Are they producing well? I don't think I can grow them in Austin.

I'm getting going here, slowly! I'll probably just get some allium in yet for this season. Anyone an expert on organic blueberry bushes that haven't been cultivated in over 8 years?
