I am an organic gardener living in Fremont, Ohio, which is a small (50,000) rural community. There is a lot of agriculture in this part of the state. It is also very flat here! The glaciers that formed the Great Lakes leveled our land and left behind what is known as "Ohio clay".

My interests include perennials, cacti & succulents, vermiculture and composting. I started my first worm bin on January 9, 2003 and it has become a rewarding and interesting hobby. Since I live in town, I have a small yard to work with. The challenges that presents make it interesting though.

I live with my husband, Jim, and son, Derek (10). They enjoy my gardening and my son has learned a lot about soil, worms and flowers since I got serious about improving the looks of our lawn and landscape. I am a factory worker at Fenner Dunlop and my husband is a drywaller.

I sometimes think I would go nuts if I couldn't work the soil and raise my plants from seeds. It is a very rewarding area of my life and I truly have a passion for it.

I live in: United States

My zone is: Zone 5b NW Ohio
