I came to love gardening as an adult and wished I had started sooner. Winter sowing has become a passion for me, followed by seed saving. In my area I did Winter Sowing workshops last year and am scheduled to do two more this year. In addition, I will be doing three workshops called "Solving the Seed Mystery". In my workshops I always promote Gardenweb as a place to gain knowledge and friends.
In my life outside of gardening I am a full time nanny for two wonderful boys. Last winter I started the 9 year old on winter sowing and he now has a garden full of flowers, tomatoes, cucumbers and Edamame. He loved it all! He is even excited about putting together some "Newbie" packets to send out. The baby is 17 months and I take him to the garden to watch the butterflies. In addition, I have a part time job for a non-profit. Life is so busy that my gardens are where I find my "center" and commune with nature. In 4 years I plan to retire and can then garden full time.
Gardenweb is a wonderful community where I have discovered many people I would love to live next door to. The Winter Sowing Forum is my all time favorite as the people there are so helpful, kind and generous.
