Welcome to lindalawrence's Member Page
I am happily retired, but busier than I had hoped.
I am getting back into my gardens after about 4-5 years with minimal activity due to back problems. Thrilled to be back into it. Our newly purchased Golf Cart for getting around the property has also helped me be able to get around more efficiently for all those little chores that have you running back to the out-building or garage for supplies and tools. I can even hold onto the hose and drag it to the various gardens for watering.
The midwest (West Central Missouri) is very challenging and can be discouraging due to hot, dry summers. But, I think we learn a little more each year about what will work and what won't and also discover the things that will work are neater than we at first thought.
I also have lots of shade to contend with due to our being in the "woods" with about 1/2 acre cleared for house and drive.
I live in: United States
My zone is: USDA 5 MO
