About me

First, the information and pictures shared here are wonderful.
I was raised on a farm in Northeast Missouri, USA. In the summer there was always a large vegetable garden and lots of flowers everywhere.
I now live on five acres in West Central Illinois. There are many Oak trees here so I have learned to love shade plants. Those trees are greedy about moisture and nutrients. Container gardening has been fun the last couple of years.
This year I've started some vegetables and herbs in containers. Sun
space is limited but we'll give it a try.
