I am a wildlife lover, Birder and organic gardener. Though I modify methods to adjust to my physical abilities now.

My last small suburbian postage stamp sized back yard had vegetables, apples, peaches, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, blackberries, roses and various perenials. All of that was raised without chemicals and from items traded with others. I don’t buy anything. I’d rather share and build my yard with memories of exchanges or gifts. Now I’m divorced and have less than 5 acres to play with.

My body is older than I am due to overuse and abuse as well as Chronic conditions like Fibromyalgia and spine injury leaving my energy disipating with Chronic Fatigue. So I use energy conserving methods and rotate positions and jobs...I mulch, lasagna layer, raise beds with a no walk on soil policy and no wider than I can reach across. I use sticks & canes etc to get up and down. I plant with a hollow tube I drop the seed in. Watering is with a soaker drip hose right to the root zones (never on leaves).

I became an instant Grandma when my son married and he fathered two more. My daughter is also married and I never thought she’d have any but just had a big baby boy! I believe you are sucessfull only when you are helping someone else be sucessful in their dreams and not too proud to allow others to help you.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z4/5 NES MI
