It just occurred to me when I found this forum that I registered earlier this month and have been posting for the past few days, but never introduced myself.
My name is Joan, and I live in North Dakota. Yeah, I know, you didn't know anyone actually LIVED in North Dakota, but there's a few of us that are either die hards or too broke to leave. LOL
I have been vegetable gardening for years to feed my rather large family, but now the kids are growing and one by one going away to college. Now I am feeling the need to reduce the size of the vegetable garden and plant more flowers. This is the first year of this plan, so I still have a lot to learn and do. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you and glean some of your expert knowledge.
Some of you may know me from gardenweb, "tryingtogarden". Someday I am going to have to change that handle when I get this whole garden thing figured out.
Looking forward to a long winter with all of you.
