Well where to begin ... I am a 54 years old, happily married and grandmother of 5. My gardening began in my early 20's when we bought our first home. My grandfather (from the "old country") would stop by regularly to guide and teach me about what was involved in creating simple flower beds.
As I look back and remember, most of my true learning of various plants was very hands-on. We didn't have much money "back in the day", so I would go to our local nursery with $5 in hand and spend hours reading all the various plant descriptions; then decide which plants I would take home to experiment with. Ahhhh, what wonderful days those were!!
Now, after an accident which has left me with "challenges"; my gardening is confined to a much smaller patch of earth. But I none-the-less enjoy every moment "in the dirt". I love sharing what I have learned and coaxing "younger folk" to try their hands at gardening.
