Hello my name is Samantha I am 24 years old and from Michigan I recently found out I had diabetes and need to lose weight to get it under control. I love to garden so that is why I am here. I am not sure what all happens here or anything so feel free to write me. Hope to make lots of friends here.

We bought a new home last year and are just now getting to wanting to do something about the yard and flower gardens. I try to get seeds or bulbs from friends cause they seem to do better than store bought things for me, plus it saves money.
My dream is to create a larger patio out back so I can sit and watch the grandkids play and have a place for a firepit and family and friends to come sit and relax and share times together.

I am from CT, working on a big garden in back, with pathways and benches, so that in a few years, when we retire, my husband and I can walk out there and enjoy our flowers and creations. We have 3 grown kids and 2 grandkids. My page has a picture of a small section of the garden. Love, Sue

I just joined today and am trying to motivate my self to eat better, stop smoking, and exercise regularly. I live in MT so only summer gardening is an option but during this winter I hope to get my hydroponic system set up and at least grow some lettuce and herbs. I worked at an organic gardening store for the last 6 years and grew up gardening with my parents but haven't always had the time to do it myself. I want to change that and have a garden in 2010 and grow as much as I can. Then I have to learn storage techniques such as canning. Looking forward to getting my hands dirty!

Welcome Tauruslly, I too just moved into a new home and our soil is virgin desert sand... My job is cut out this winter. A neighbor cleaned out his stalls and brought over literally a ton of horse manure, he said he was glad to find a place to dump it. So my compost pile has been composting for the last couple of months and we will begin rototilling it in sometime in november so it will be ready this spring for those baby tomato plants.

Hello! I just finished the "all new members please read this before posting 2" topic, so I thought I should come here next to introduce myself. I've been on SP for about 3 months with my DH. I've had a great time developing better lifestyle habits. We have a new house with really terrible soil so I'm planning to start some things in pots. We have our compost started so that we can build up to better soil. I look forward to getting lots of help from this board (I know I'll need it). emoticon

Good morning!
I just wanted to say hello. I'm new to this team, (read the "read only" topic:-D already). I joined Spark people a while ago, but keep falling off of the wagon! I am determined to get it right this time! I am really looking forward to meeting new friends.
We had a really big garden this year and I have been spending quite a few weekends canning our vegetables! We are already planning next years garden and plan on going bigger.

Hi!
Just joined this team! I have a passion for gardening, and just moved this year to a new home and missed my first garden in 30years. I had such withdrawl that I planted some pumpkin plants in straw bales for the grandkids and have a couple of pumpkins that will be ready for halloween. Will be preparing a 50x100ft virgin sandy soil with horse manure this fall for next springs garden, can't wait.
I am part of over 60 crowd that has over a 100lbs to lose. I topped out in Feb this year at 317lbs and after finding sparkpeople am down to 279lbs thanks to this place and still going strong...

Hi I am Richard from Washington State. I just joined Sparks and I have a very dear love for gardening. I have really over did it this year with nearly a quarter acre garden. It has been a real challenging. Now the first frost has hit and we just spent 2 hours harvesting about half of the garden. Anyway I am new and have a goal to lose 208lbs. I'm looking forward to being a part of sparks. I really need the support. I am just starting on this road and I cant do it alone. I have good friends here that asked me to join so I'm looking forward to learning and making new friend ships. By the way, anyone want some Zucchini!? lol

Hi Everyone,
My name is Lee & I live in New York. Seven years ago my DH & I moved out to the country part of NY. As a child I grew up in NYC & Long Island which is as well part of NY, this is where I live now, the start of country part of NY. It's 80 miles from NYC. I love it here among the trees & nature. It's beautiful!

During the summer my family spent the entire summer in the country & every weekend all yr. round as long as the weather was okay.
I have been gardening since I could dig a hole in the ground, so that was young.
My Mom always had a veggie garden full of an assortment of veggies.
We also had apple, peaches, pears & cherry trees.
I saw this site on the SP Community board & had to join.
Looking forward getting to know all.

Big Hug to all my new friends
Lee emoticon emoticon emoticon

New here... again! I use to be a member on this team when I first joined sparks three years ago. Since I have lost over 30 pounds and slowly have more time to share some of my garden ideas with everyone.

I would love to meet other sparkies who enjoy gardening.
Please stop by my page or my blog at:
momingarden.blogspot.com/

Wonderful to meet you all. I am going to spend some time this morning on your board checking out what everyone had fun growing this year. I just posted a photo collection of the last of my Harvest for this year.

Happy Fall Harvest Garden Team!

IT all begins with YOU..... Plant the seeds and get growing healthy!

Can't find me - I am always in the garden:

Hi! My name is Bridget. I live in the Kansas City area. I have great husband and three kids. Two of them are in school and one is running around the house with me still. So when he wants to run around the yard. That is my chance to do some gardening but I don't do enough. Also, I joined this gardening team to get lots of pointers and ideas. I just don't seem like I have enough.

Hello, my name is Sandra and I live in southern Saskatchewan,Canada. We are in the process of selling our home and moving to the farm. I am going from a shaded yard to an open,windy,sunny yard, surrounded by trees.
I will move the vines and roses, and a few perenials who love the sun, but I need to learn more about this sunny, drier garden space. Suggestions for design and alternatives are welcome. a 20ft long, 4-5ft wide bed exsisted along one side of the yard. Now I need to convince my husband, the old boat half in the ground there must go. Chalenges!lol

Hi everyone! My name is Janine and I live near Reno/Carson City Nevada. I love gardening in the high desert. Check out my pics of my garden, you might be surprised. It's kind of square foot gardening on steroids. The garden is one way of going green ha ha ha. I have a lot of other interest sewing and being very creative! I retired from the school system as a institutional cook & high school manager in 2002. So come on by and check out my page

Hello there! My name is Christina and I live in Dayton, Ohio. I love to garden. I started gardening over 15 years ago when we lived in the country. At that time I had a nice sized garden with lots of different vegetables. I enjoyed canning and always having something year round from my garden. Now that we live in the city I mostly grow flowers and have found how wonderful and how challenging it can be. I am learning all the time. I love a big project and the satisfaction I get from it! I am hoping to do put in a pond and try some different plants there.

I look forward to reading a lot of new ideas here as well as encouragement to get out there more.

Hi everyone, i live in the uk on the south coast and am into the second year of working on my first proper garden. Its small but divided into four sections - old fashioned english cottage plants - a windy shaded bit - a chicken run - patios with containers. It's so great to be able to combine, eating well, getting fit, and your interests with like minded people. I promise not to start any new threads and am looking forward to reading what everyone is doing in their gardens. Wishing you all green fingers - ela

Hello, Everyone! My name is Angela, and I love to garden! I'm happy to have found this team! My husband and I live on 24 acres of land, 3 of which is our yard, and I plan and manage the gardens on it. I am just learning, and have been gardening for about 3 years now. I look forward to reading all of the interesting topics from all of the team members here. I also have recently found that gardening is considered a very good form of exercise. I've been losing weight for some time now, and in the past 4 weeks have lost 17 lbs. :-) If gardening helps, that is one more added benefit. The best benefit that I've found is that I feel closer to God when I'm in my garden....He must have loved gardening too....after all, He created Eden, and called it good. ;-) Have fun gardening!

Hello all! My name is Katie, I'm from Ontario, Canada. I absolutely adore my gardens, especially my flowers, but out here we have too much land and its challenging to keep up with it all. but I love it just the same. I'm glad to have found a team like this, when thinking about my goals, I would have never thought to be on a gardening team with the same common goals. :) This is pretty cool

Hi Everyone,

My name is Victoria, I'm from central NJ. I live with my family and we have quite a large yard (by usual standards I think), we compost and had a gazebo build this spring in the middle, and have a couple regular flowers, bushes and trees growing there. I'm new to gardening (I just started this spring), so I hope you don't mind I will be asking some questions in the other thread.

Greetings,

Victoria

Hi, my name is Helen. I love to garden,mostly flowers.I did put in a veggie garden this year. It hasn't done too well. This is unusual, but we moved last Feb. and didn't do much with the soil. Maybe that is why??? Compost,manure and lime over the winter is what an old gardner told me.????

Hi everybody,

I joined 2 weeks ago but have not introduced myself here yet.
I used to go to Curves 2 years ago but then I got an allotment for my birthday and found that I coulnd't cope with the extra work plus Curves, so I gave that up.
I usually think of lots of reasons why I haven't got time to walk to the allotment but once I'm there I can spend loads of hours digging, weeding, cutting the grass and of course, harvesting my produce.

But it's not enough to lose some weigth and get/ stay fit, so I look forward to some great gardening challenges.

Hi my name is Ann,

I have recently discovered the love of gardening as well as landscape work. I have a vegetable garden with beans, cucumbers, tomatoes and both kinds of peppers hot and sweet. There is no other feeling in the world then seeing things grow to their full potential. It has gotten me outside to be more active. I even retired our riding lawn mower to a push mower for the exercise. I have about 60 lbs. more to lose and look forward to a very enriching group, as with all spark people you are all wonderful people. Sincerely,
Ann :)
