I just found this site and I love it. Already requested two seeds from the trading lists. I am a 43-year-old married mother of two who gardens despite my MS and neuropathic pain. Even as I lose the ability to do other things, I garden. In the depths of winter, I dream my way through the catalogs and plan what new seeds we'll try and what old favorites to replant. Trays and trays of seedlings have already sprouted and are growing daily, despite the dreary Jersey spring. And, NOW (drumroll...), the wonderful husband has set up a greenhouse!!!
We ordered it from Gardener's Greenhouse in PA. It's 4'x4'x5' and completely accessible from the outside. No worries of narrow doorways, narrow aisle, too high tables, or lips on the door frame that my wheelchair can't manage. Up in less than a day and already housing two dwarf apples trees awaiting their pots and the sunshine. Electric wheelchairs don't like puddles...
We started a worm factory just last week and already have fresh castings awaiting the spring planting. My nine-year-old daughter is in charge of gathering the scraps for the worms and she talks to them as she adds them every day. Scolds her father whenever he throws anything away. Even thrilled with the babies already in evidence. What a great way to recycle trash and kitchen waste. They even like dryer lint!
Looking forward to meeting all of you here! Let's see those green thumbs!
