Our latest subscriber (and I was going to subscribe her for a Christmas present - that's two gifts she's hijacked already :) is none other than my mom. So for those of you who thought the world should never have two of me in it, well...this is probably your worst nightmare!

Just kidding - she and I are a lot alike in ways that matter (gardening!!!!) but also different in other ways, and I know she will enjoy this place as much as I do.

Welcome to Dave's Garden, Edens_gardener/(aka Terry's Mom)!!!!

Hello Edens_gardener!
Your "Dave's Garden Handle" made me smile. Here in mid-Michigan, we have a tiny little 4-corners of a hamlet called Eden, and in it for many years was a little greenhouse called: The Garden of Eden!
Welcome from Oscarsdotter :-)
P.S. Your daughter Terry is wonderful, by-the-way! :-)

Welcome to the garden! Too bad about the Christmas present, but you will be an old timer on here by the time that day rolls around, and Terry has plenty of time to get you a different gift. Meanwhile, we will be getting to know you.

I'm looking for my mother!!! Wahhh!

(No I didn't make her up, she's real.) They're moving into a new house, probably as I write this. When I talked to her last Friday it was on her cell phone (hope she still has some minutes left this month); and she wouldn't have a "land line" to hook into for internet stuff for another week or so. So, I'll wait patiently...first time I've ever had to wait on my mom, it's usually the other way around! Thanks ya'll for helping me greet her...whenever she gets around to making an appearance!

Poor lady, she probably has to catch up on her rest after a move. And a new house will invariably have some tricks up its sleeve for us, like little things that don't work right. But I hope she gets rested soon, we're all anticipating her arrival.

She was aware that when she arrived, she wouldn't leave for days, so she wants to get everything cinched up before she takes the plunge. A feast will be ready for her when she finally arrives. I'm chilling a little nog for those who don't want coffee or tea. Calories suspended for this occasion. Herb tea for Badseed.
