I got seeds in the mail! I am going to be planting my own little meadows and bee gardens in the yard.

updated since many of the recommended leaf vacuums were discontinued. If you have a large property and trees, you really need one, so I hope many of discontinuations are only a seasonal thing.

My garden journal is an old blog, one of the first garden blogging pioneer blogs. I started updating and omg- it never ends!  I now have about 1004 posts, even though it had gone through hiatus times.

I own these so I thought I'd post a review for one of my fellow gardening Squids. If you wondered what purpose a little pair of snips might serve- read on!

with new computers I had to relearn how to use programs, and had to use new ones when the old didn't work.

Introduction
Born and bred in Ohio, and like it despite all its detractors. I've been raising ten children for the past 30 years or so, and gardened quite a bit. Along the way I hitched a ride on the internet and have been blogging and otherwise making my way through the social networking world online ever since.

Five things about me:
  • I'm outspoken, yet a bit reserved;
  • friendly enough, but a keeper at home;
  • politically conservative, with a liberally compassionate core
  • I am contrarian
  • say "I" too much, am an INTP
I learned HTML and CSS on my own... and use writing and webmastering as ways to stretch myself mentally. I work with Wordpress and Joomla.

Recently reconnecting with old and new friends through Facebook.

If you'd like to support my website work you could order your Amazon choices through my Amazon.com affiliate. Began a creative journey with Zazzle, which is becoming a way to pay for my internet habit.
