I have 4 children ages 18 down to 3...all girls. My entire family makes fun of me constantly because, to use their words, I am a "garden geek". I have a very large yard with 4 decent size gardens. The one I put in last year is my version of a rock garden. Im planning to start another garden next year which will run down part of one side of my back yard...kind of a boarder. Im scarred to tell anyone in my house about it yet. (They might have me committed). The next project after that is figuring out how to tie all these gardens together (eg. paths, etc). Im hoping to find a lot of great ideas here at The Garden Web.

Update 2006: Well, the kids now range from almost 20 down to 5. That garden that I wanted to start is well underway but still doesnt have nearly enough plants in it. I used to buy everything but have recently tried winter sowing with success. The rock garden now has a pergola build over it...with french doors comming out from the back of the house...and furniture. The gardens are definately moving along! (Never did get those paths done though!)
2010: Path was done in 2009. This years project is thinning the gardens. Getting a bit over grown.

2013: Where does the time go? My kids are now calling me to ask if I can give them some plants for their gardens! LOL
