Hi TC! I really enjoyed your article. .It brought back many memories of gardens of "yesteryear"! It's great to read a nice gardening article on a bitterly cold Winter day. My suggestion to anyone contemplating their very first garden is to start right now with your planning and research.
Once you begin gardening, you will never want to quit!
Again, great article!

Ditto what she said, TC! (And a big howdy to you, TC's sister!)

Looking forward to reading some more articles in the future, TC!

I was cleaning out the tool closet the other day of broken-handled shovels, bent rakes, etc and was reminded of an article (or maybe a post on DG) about how you turned old tools into Yard Art (faces on shovels, etc). That might be good this time of year to write about while we all have a bit of "easy time" left before the gardening season really kicks in, eh?

Thanks Sis! You said it: "Once you begin gardening, you will never want to quit."

Shoe, that's a great suggestion. It's almost seed starting time too and I have a mind to tell folks how to make a really cheap grow light shelving unit.

Hi TC and a big "Howdy" back to you, Shoe! About turning old tools into yard art. . I have actually done that with great success! It is a fun way to "recycle" AND add your personal touch to a spot in your garden or flower bed. And yes, it would be a GREAT project for a lazy Winter Saturday. Then, come Spring, you've got new yard art that you created yourself!

Hi--I noticed your Late Blight article today and realized I had some catching up to do, reading your previous ones. This one reminded me of some of the clues I could have had early that I'd be a lifelong plant person--like having plants in my room as a teenager, and starting cactus from seed way back then.
Now tc-- an article about your sister's yard art would be in order...
Keep 'em coming!
