Hi! I just signed up at the recommendation of my friend Jo-Ann. We are both into veggie gardening. Now, she's talked me into getting some chickens!

I have a good sized home orchard with fig, orange, satsuma, and mulberry trees. I also have a lot of blackberry & grape vines.This past November, I planted about 500 strawberry plants and can't wait for them to start producing. Jo-Ann is helping me expand my vegetable garden, just for my family & me. We've been selecting tomatoes, squash, cucumber & pepper plants. It's kind of late here to start potatoes, so that will have to wait until next year.

I'm excited to be here.

Welcome! , Mildred.

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.
