Welcome to alison's Member Page
Finally getting around to updating my profile! (May 2012)
I've bought my first home and am no longer constrained by a landlords whims. Ironically, I have a big house on a tiny lot, and the "garden area" is laughably small. Still, I'm busy transforming my little space; building a retaining wall so I can tear out the grass, planting a veggie garden right out in front -- maybe even putting in a water feature. I moved to a lovely little block with a diverse group of neighbors, many of whom have their one, unique gardens on display. It feels good to own my own little spot in inner-city Columbus.
I still maintain a fairly large garden at work, with peach and pear trees. (Expecting our first few pears this year!) We recently reclaimed a sunny slope in back with little terraced plots of grapes and blackberries, and veggies, watered by a makeshift rain barrel.
Hope to post pictures soon!
