Big Move Across the World.

Hello all,

I now live in Jakarta Indonesia, and am absolutely amazed and blown away by all the different plant species here. I’ve never seen the likes of so many. A wonderful adventure, indeed. I am currently starting my flower garden in our humble front yard – mostly all from seed – and am waiting on vegetable seeds from the US to start a container vegetable garden on our roof! I’m excited to learn the planting, growing, reaping times here in this hot, humid country, because it isn’t like a America at all. There is no winter here, just a rainy season. I know I won’t be able to grow some things like cabbage and cauliflower because they require cooler temperatures, but I’m looking forward to this gardening journey. I hope to post many pictures in the future so all of you can see and experience my garden, and local tropical plants, along with me.
