Our neighbors are all good and we exchange with each other when we get a bounty. We have enjoyed our years here as each looks out for the other. Across the street neighbor went out of town and came back with peaches for all of us.
Cool! I don't think our neighbors would be into doing this. Maybe one a block over, but the rest, not so much. Something to consider though. Yea, I do have some high container gardens, but not a lot of them. I do use one of my bistro chairs and sit to weed, work. But is getting easier to move around, but not long lengths of time...yet!
BE YOURSELF! BE YOU! You can do it!

Welcome to the team. I do gardening. My plot in the back is a community effort. Another neighbor lowed and planted it with what is not in his plot. He brings me things from his garden and takes different veggies from mine. The garden is low for me to work.. I have large containers up on platforms where I grow my tomatoes, peppers, and lots of herbs. Easy to walk up to , weed, water and harvest. We are talking about building up the garden plot about a foot above the surrounding ground for easier work
Welcome to the team! The wet weather has managed to drown all my tomato plants, so we're having to start all over again with whatever we manage to find still available. Gardens come in all different sizes, from just containers to acres of crops and orchards. Whatever the scale, we're all learning from each other. Glad to have you aboard.
Hi there, My name is Debbie.. My short story is that I am married, no kids. Married later in life - married for 15yrs now. 52yrs old or young I should say! I have some health issues - fibromyalgia, which is pretty manageable. Had a leg injury 2.5yrs ago, and that has made life quite challenging, as walking is coming back very slowly.
My GARDENING has taken a bit of a back burner due to this challenge. Not as much as I have done or would like to do. But, I am doing little bits here and there and hope to really get back into it next year, and some items for the Fall. Didn't get much started this season due to our very very wet spring, and too many weeds! But, I love it, have all kinds of ideas, and can't wait to DIG IN!
That is the short side of the story. Look forward to getting to know people on this team! Deb
