Hi everyone!

I am a beginner gardener with a love for all things green :D I have had no luck with any of my gardens over the last 3 years that I’ve lived in our house. Halp!

I am a 27 year old administrative assistant, living in Canada’s National Capital, in the SW ’burbs of Barrhaven. I am crafty. My husband keeps me company in our house, with our two cats (Byron the Maine Coon, and Cole the black long-hair), two snakes (Pele, the Volcano Cornsnake and Salazar, the Peublan Milk Snake) and one dog (Maddie, a Australian Sheppard/Lab/Rotti mix).
