I started my garden love (addiction) as a kid helping pull weeds in my parent's yard. Then I got into growing tomatoes. A couple years ago I finally got my hands on an acre and the fixation has gotten out of control!
I have a year-round tree nursery. Outside I have a section for annuals and a huge area set aside for fruit trees and bushes...yep...about 50 of them. I got pears, apples, peaches, plums, pawpaws, persimmons, apricots, cherries, raspberries, blackberries, honeyberries, blueberries, loganberries, strawberries...okay...just alot of berries.
Let me tell ya, there's nothing like some home made jam! More on that later.
Now that I'm vegan I plan on never going to the store again...okay maybe for toilet paper! :) See My Vegan Page for more on that.
