I’ve always loved plants, but had to make do with a few houseplants until I moved in with my husband in Carlsbad, CA. We had a tiny place a couple miles from the ocean which had more patio than garden, so most of our stuff we grew in containers. Then my husband got transferred to the opposite coast and we bought a house with an odd shaped lot. The road curves in front of our house so most of the yard is to the side of the house, instead of in back. However, we get LOTS of sun, which is hard to find around here as most of the area is in “the last vestiges of the great northern forest”.
I love growing food. If you can eat it, I want to try it.
I try to garden organically, and am interested in landscaping with native species, but I’m not extreme about it. I practice IPM (Integrated Pest Management) — or I try to. I still have so much to learn!
