It has been about a year since I have posted - a lot going on. My daughters heart condition was worsening steadily over the last year. In November she had open heart surgery to install an LVAD - a heart pump to assist her left ventricle. she will keep that until she gets on the list for a heart transplant.
So, hope everyone has been gardening and growing and is excited about SPRING which is just a few weeks away (in gardener mindthink). I received my first seed catalog (Thank you Territorial) on Christmas Eve - what a great present!
I will try to post some pics soon. My computer died, and I have a new one but all my pics are somewhere on a spare drive. I have almost finished the front of the yard, planted fruit trees, and started to apply permaculture principles with dead wood swales and hugelkulter - so keep tuned for that.
