Hello, I'm Kathy, and live in Maryland. Yes, I know my username is Jerzigirl55, so what's up with that right? Well I'm a temporary transplant to Maryland, due to job relocation. My home will always be in NJ, where my heart remains.

I know I inherited my love of gardening from both my mother and her mother. I live to have my feet and hands in the dirt, everyday! I love to plant anything and everything, and get a real thrill being able to root cuttings and start new plants in my potting shed.
I have a special interest in growing and drying herbs for use in my cooking.

Looking forward to joining in on the discussions on this SparkTeam and meeting some new friends who share my passion for gardening and bare feet!

Hi, I teach horticulture in Michigan and have a greenhouse at school, I keep it year round, right now my bananas are blooming. I do not go in daily during July because I teach summer school, my bananas started blooming the end of June, there are only a couple bananas now, the flowers are not getting pollinated, very disappointing, these are the first bananas I have gotten to bloom. My daughter is in my FFA (Future Farmers of America) club with my class and she has a small pineapple plantation, they are planted in our garden now and she will move them to the greenhouse in the fall, later she will force them to bloom and sell them. I think learning should be fun, and try to use the greenhouse as much as possible.

Hi, My name is Barb and I believe I was born with my feet in the dirt. Ever since I can remember I have been around gardens, fields and plants and I will soon be 69. Over the years I have learned many things about gardens and growing things and am still learning. I have always wanted a green house so that is still more for me to do and learn. I live in East Central Illinois and my garden is my way of keeping myself on an even keel. Look forward to meeting more gardeners.

The Lord is my tower and my strength!

Hello. My name is Christine. I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have a lot of fun gardening, I refer to it as meditation in the dirt. There's always something more to do but it always seems good enough. Somehow, I seem to get good yields in a yard that has some Sun issues. I grow things year-round. And everything is on automatic drip system. I'm convinced that I do not know how to water and I do not want to learn. Much of the time I also do not know how to weed. I lay down hay around some of my plants to help with the weed issue. Pretty much I plant and harvest. I subscribed to grow veg.com so that I can plan out my garden as I sit on my couch. Then I go out and just supposedly plant what it says. I often have to edit when I come back inside. :)

Gardening is a kind of disease. It infects you, you cannot escape it. When you go visiting, your eyes rove about the garden; you interrupt the serious cocktail drinking because of an irresistible impulse to get up and pull a weed.

Hi
I'm from Georgia with one teenager. I have been an avid gardener for many years and would love to have a greenhouse. I had the opportunity to work in a green house with a horticulturist.
