RE: [gardeners] Where I garden

In Southern Indiana, where gardening is a different learning experience
every year.  (One year was thirty-nine daily rains, followed by drought, and
the plants still grew, despite all, including my ministrations.)  Heavy
clay, a sun garden, and my 'garden' shed is full.  I started 'real
gardening' by taking over the kids' play area when they grew up.  I quickly
discovered some little tricks...sandbox contents were great amendments for
the first garden bed but I keep finding toy soldiers in odd places.  The
garden part grows every year, bumping out here and there.  Hubby approves,
since mowing is starting to get easier.

I have a bit of this and a smidgeon of that on a small town lot.  I do go
overboard with  quite a few daylilies and several varieties of
tomatoes...ah, daylilies are supposed to be edible...just in case.  ;-)

The snow is finally melting, and a new front is supposed to move through
today, dusts of snow to decorate all.  Somehow, my Christmas poinsettias
look plasticized rather than mummified, and are threatening to hang around
through Easter.
Seed starting starts soon.  :)
