I learned everything I know in this forum. If you care to see my garden go to my website. You will be entertained. And my garden speak for itself.
I'd like to thank Jenny from PA who started me to grow citrus, Joe, Lisa, Mr. Texas, Mr. Childers, Al, Dr. Manners and Millet and to those good people here too many to mention who have guided me to the rest of the years to the present.
I retired from the government service 3 years ago and I moved to Salinas CA. The best thing that happened to me was discovering the citrus forum. Today I can boast that I am an accomplished gardener way beyond my dreams. Go to http://community.webshots.com/user/bencelest and see for yourself.
I have 3 kids ages 16, 13 and 11 who are karate champions and will all be black belts this year. They also excel in academics. All are GATE students and in principals honor rolls . They are well liked by their peers.But most of all parents like them because of their honest and respect to elders. I can not be so proud.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z9 CA

My Birthday is April 6 .
