My husband, Bruce, is the gardener of the family. He gardens every spare minute he has. His preference is edibles - tomatoes, green onions, pineapples, eggplant, starfruit, many etceteras. He also tries to plant native, especially when exotics are the variety that run rampant (he hates brazilian pepper).
I am a h.s. English teacher interested in building a new home without losing my sanity and/or my marriage. The more I learn the more paranoid/paralyzed I become. It seems that the possibilities for goof-ups are infinite and we've already had some very unpleasant experiences before even breaking ground.
Ending on a very up-note, we have a 10 month old grandson who is the most adorable little boy in the world. I never knew I would feel so happy being a grandmother, thank heavens life is full of surprises.
Last, I'd like to thank Spike and all the members for being so generous with their knowledge. It helps keep the cynicism levels down. You're very much appreciated.
