I'm a vocal and choral musician by profession, and have gardened for over 30 years. My husband and I have three grown daughters, one here in town and two in Seattle.

I gardened on 1/2 acre in Surrey, British Columbia for 17 years, each year expanding the amount of garden bed space and the number of perennials, bulbs, etc. What a fantastic climate for gardening! We lived in Nashville ('02-'05) and improved the front yard of the house we rented with annuals and perennials, and winter sowed for the first time.

I moved with my hubby to Michigan in July, 2005 to a property of over three glorious acres with a pond, but which hasn't been gardened for decades--a blank canvas.
I'm winter sowing like mad and hope to have many seedlings to plant! We're enjoying the wildlife, peace and quiet, and plan to get some chickens in spring 2006.

I garden organically and love composting.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z5 MI
