Just a girl raised in Hawaii, transplanted to Ohio 13 years ago. Wow, how time flies! I’ve always lived in an apartment, so I’ve haven’t had a garden. Now I live in the country (sub-division) so I have limited gardening space but dived in completely. What a joy! I’m a Master Gardener for my county and a volunteer dog walker/cat cuddler for my local humane society. I still think the best way to learn about gardening is from the experience of others and not all from books. So thus, joining this forum. I hope to learn & share from this forums members. My father was a great gardener back in Hawaii and focused on exotic fruit trees. I hope to find a mentor here in the states. And away we go!

I garden pesticide and herbicide free. I believe in "some for me & some for the insects & animals". If it doesn’t grow in my micro world, why fight mother nature, plant something else. All plants are grown from seed, unless given to me by the generosity of my gardening friends. Please excuse the spelling!
