About me

I'm a beginner gardener trying to keep the faith. I have a great deal to learn but keep on keeping on. I'm interested in growing vegetables for home cooking and sharing. I live on the face of the sun, so I'm very interested in native plants and water harvesting.

Current project

Planting & landscaping to take advantage of being outside and enjoying the soon to be here fall weather!

Type of gardener

beginner with a capital B

Favorite garden activity

snipping herbs for a delightful meal. dining alfresco. the wonderous smell of night jasmine.

Hi Hosta- I am a beginner too- can't wait to see more of your adventures in gardening. I just planted my first bulbs ever! We'll see how it works out!

Dining alfresco on a great Texas evening makes gardening in our heat all worth it. We're a little cooler up here in Austin, but i can relate to "living on the face of the sun" :-)
