Hi! I'm Terry Stuhldreher. I live near Akron, Ohio. I am a chemical engineer, and I work in development for a major tire company. I have a wonderful wife (anyone who puts up with me must be special) and seven children- 4 boys and 3 girls. Only 4 of the children (and sometimes 5) still live at home. The youngest, our 10 year old daughter, is watching me type this so I'll have to tell you about her later. I have 1 grandson, 2 weeks old as I write this.
I've been gardening since I was a kid and especially enjoy vegetable gardening. I was raised in the city but my wife was a farm girl, so we've had a large yard since we've been married so she wouldn't feel "closed in." Now, I wouldn't want it any other way, either.
We have a 60' x 60' vegetable garden and do a lot of canning, especially tomatoes and tomato products. Our biggest project each summer is spaghetti sauce. So far, the kids don't share my passion for gardening. But our oldest son grew his first vegetable garden last summer in the small yard of his first house, so maybe the others will also come around.
I live in: United States
My zone is: 5b
My favorite forum 1 is Vegetable Gardening.
