Hi I'm from northern Illinois and really love veggies. I have a prairie garden in the front yard and a woodland garden in the back. There is a little space for veggies on the south side of my house. Part of the garden has run-away lemon balm growing in it. I put some oregano in front and I have to watch that too. I've been incorporating greens in with the prairie in front. Oh I also have 2 rhubarb plant in back that I've been harvesting and cooking up and putting in my oatmeal and applesauce.

Hello Jennifer and Darlene - nice to meet you.

I am like you Darlene in that I am on the border of section 5A and 5B so it will be a while until we plant.

Nice to meet you both and do jump right in, posting on the threads and making yourselves at home.

Hello --

I am Darlene from the Great State of North Carolina. According to the USDA zone map I am literally on the border of section 7A-7B . Yes on some maps zone 7 is subdivided.

Much of my veggie gardening is done by putting veggies in between my flowers or in large pots on my deck. I try to grow something new each year, whether a flower or veggie. Last year it was potatoes.

My hobbies include digging in the dirt, reading, college basketball and stitching.

I am married with four children and five grandchildren.

Favorite snack foods include chocolate and low salt pretzel twists.

One pet--The Fluff who is a " rescued" gray cat.

Hi, I'm Jennifer.

I love to garden and am looking so forward to learning with you! Gardening is so great because you get exercise and you get to see results from your workout and best of all what you accomplish in the garden. It's instant gratification, especially when your little garden grows!!

Hi Pam, welcome to the team.
So far, I have had to satisfy my gardening urges with starting seeds inside and cleaning up the beds, so I understand the urge to get out there and get started.

Hi and nice to meet you Pam. I just stopped by your page to leave a welcome note but couldn't. Nice to see you post here so I could officially welcome you to the team.

I am Sunny and I live in Northeast Missouri. It will be a while before we are planting but the planning has been fun.

Best wishes on your Spark Journey and your garden this year.

Sunny

Hi all, nice to find this group...My name is Pam and I love to garden and right now the weather is so nice I want to start my veggie garden..but alas we still have many freezing nights left. I live at an altitude of 3500 feet and just 10 days ago we had 8 inches of snow. But I have planted several bulbs this past couple of days and that has help the itch to get started.
