Welcome to mia_r's Member Page
My garden is on a corner, suburban lot, approximately 1/3 acre. My long term goal is to reduce the amount of lawn, it’s too much maintenance. The soil is orange, hard-packed Kansas clay and erosion is sometimes a problem , as the property slopes. My main gardening headache is the limestone rocks that I’m always digging up.
Besides gardening, I also like to cross-stitch, make jewelery and hypertufa. I’ve completed two mosaic projects but don’t consider myself a mosaic-ist (is that a word?)
My family thinks I have P.A.D. (Plant Acquisition Disorder) as I have yet to encounter a plant that I didn’t like. Except for Yucca!
I live in: United States
My zone is: z6/KS
