I grew up in the Midwest, and have been gardening since I could walk. We had a huge garden while I was growing up, and I've gardened any time I could since then. Now I find myself living in Nevada, which is unlike any other place I've gardened. I've been reading all I can about gardening here, because the house I live in came with mature landscaping, but not in all that great a condition. I'm slowly working on improving the landscaping, which means compost, organic fertilizers, getting the drip system fixed, working with this alkaline soil and sand, and continuing to search for solutions to the problems I find. It's like my husband says: I see a plant in distress, and I just can't leave it alone! But I love it!
I live in: United States
