To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

Ralph Waldo Emerson --a great quote regardless.
Mother of 3 young children, particularly fond of edible plants, fragrant plants, and unusual plants. I guess I love all them all... I also love music and the great outdoors, children, especially "planting things" and watching the growth and development process unfold.
Now live in z6b/7a MD . Humble suburban plot with suburban house. Sun and shade. Soil is clay/acidic. Gardening challenged by mosquitoes, squirrels, slugs and deer and not enough hours in a day to garden. Other gardening interests include extending the gardening season, edible container gardening, and ecologically sound pest and resource management. Any advice/feedback is always welcome. I’m excited to have found GW-- Thank you!
