Well... I am sneaking in on the last day of 2014! I decided that since being back I wanted to really look for teams with my interests and enjoy a daily dose of chatter! I inherited my Grams green thumb and after moving a year ago have a huge task still ahead to get my gardens going!

Hello! I grew up helping my parents with their vegetable gardens and some flowers. I have always loved gardening, but have mainly dabbled at it because I was busy raising 5 children and being a caregiver to my mother who had Parkinsons disease. But I have always loved to learn more about growing all types of plants and trees and now I have more time to actually put into planning and growing. When I saw this team I had to join. I have been a Spark person for about a year and 1/2 making those small changes one at a time. I haven't lost a big amount of weight , but I'm not giving up. Even if I can only lose 7 pounds a year it will add up and it is an improvement.

slow and steady wins the race... I think I can , I think I can, I think I can...Just one step at a time, I can do this!

Hi. I'm introducing myself after having joined this group several days ago. I enjoyed a successful first-year garden here in Indiana after having lived in Maine for 30+ years. I love gardening and will write about it here with pleasure.

Looking forward to reading about all of yours.

Hi,

I'm new to gardening and Sparkpeople. I used to love helping my granddad out in the garden and have for the first time this year attempted to grow my own vegetables. I am just benefitting from the tomatoes ripening and have had some beans and peas. I have very limited space and I am currently growing everything in pots. I have also tried growing some flowers this year. These are doing well at the moment.

I am looking forward learning new tips and hints as I try and develop my skills!

Hi! My name is Alice. I am from northern Wisconsin. I used to have 5 flower gardens and a big vegetable garden. But since I am now in a wheel chair I have limitations. I have burgundy begonias on my deck. My daughter planted four hydrangeas beside the deck which are flowering beautifully. I also have some peonies and iris in front of the deck. On the other side I have two pots with tomato plants. So even though I have limitations I still am able to enjoy the beauty of all the plants around me and do what I can with my plants. emoticon

Slow but steady wins the race!

Hi All -- I love gardening! I live in North Texas and bought my house 10 years ago and just about every inch has a garden :) It is the only exercise I enjoy doing and love stopping and smelling my roses! I look forward to sharing advice on gardening as well as providing support on our road to health! I want to be able to care for my yard myself for as long as I can. emoticon

Hi, I'm Marcia and I used to garden many years ago in South Carolina. We moved to Louisiana and I gardened some more but it was quite different and a lot harder and health issues got in the way so I eventually put in plants that could maintain themselves and kind of just did minimal stuff.

Two months ago we moved to southwest Arkansas and it is so similar to what I grew up with in South Carolina. Same kinds of plants, etc. So I'm excited to get back into gardening and am trying to relearn and to not kill the plants that are thriving in my yard. Gorgeous hydrangeas, gardenias, a redbud tree, a dogwood (I never was able to have these at my former house in LA), and other plants I have identified but can't remember their names yet. Oh, and hosts that the deer keep eating!

So I'm sure I'll be asking for help and advice on the most basic stuff!

Hi, my name is Dutch. I am 53. A single mother of two adult children. I live in Central CA with my daughter who is expecting my first grandchild in July. I love the outdoors. Gardening and yardwork. I have a big back yard that I mow with a hand mower. I have a small vegetable garden and a generous amount of flowers. I can be outside for hours with no problem. I have been with SparkPeople for a few years. Because of my medical conditions, meds and a hard time staying on track I have been yoyoing for the past couple years. I am hoping the scales start moving soon.

I'm Caz, live in Gorleston, Norfolk UK, 56 and have been on Sparks since 2007, got to goal within 3 months and have maintained ever since.
I have a corner plot with a bungalow and this garden in 4 times the size of the one I had in London (we moved to Norfolk October 2013) and I am loving the challenge.We have a private rear garden but the front and sides are open to the road so when I'm gardening I end up stopping and chatting to neighbours.
The lawns need some TLC and I have full to brimming boarders thanks to the loving care of the previous occupant.
I look forward to getting to know you all emoticon

Hi all. I live in the California foothills and LOVE gardening. I have a fairly large property so it takes some time/work to water, weed, etc. I have started my summer veggie garden and I am trying to establish new landscaping around the house (planted last year expecting more rain! :-( ). I find fresh air and sunshine, even on on bad weather days, makes me feel energized and happy to be alive so I try to get out every day. PS. I HATE bugs! All those little gnatty flying things that keep getting in my face when I am working in the afternoon/evening. Any suggestions for keeping them away?

Hi. I maybe new to the team, however, not new to sparks. Before joining this team I read a lot of the threads, which made me see what a great team this is.

I am hopeful that will I learn a lot about gardening here. In today economy, as well as all the GMO foods on our grocery shelves, I want to make certain what we eat in my home is healthy food. The way I can do this is by growing my own garden. So here I am. Ready to learn all I can and be open to sharing any information that may be help (that will be a while yet).

Hi,
I am new to SparkPeople and new to the Gardening forum. I live in Central Kentucky, and when I am not at work, I want to be outside working in the garden, or walking in the woods. (At least when the weather is nice.) I am interested in organic gardening, and the use of native plants in the landscape. I am currently trying to get rid of some invasive plants that are taking over a bit of woodland that we just bought.

I garden. I don't have enough sunlight to garden WELL, but I do get peas and raspberries/red blackberries, cucumbers and Jerusalem artichokes up the wazoo. Some kale and the like, too.

I am in Connecticut and will be moving eventually to Massachusetts where I will have a LOT more sun.



Yep, there I am, swimming through the desert sands. Might just be a mirage, after all. But this is life, and we learn best about it if we explore it, and take our chances. A life unexplored, after all, is one of the saddest things out there.

Sounds like my kind of friend:) I also live in the south. Northern Middle Tennessee. Clarksville. we are just 5 miles from Kentucky state line. I too love to garden. and sometimes have good luck with my selections and sometimes not so good. But I love getting my hands in that magical dirt:) Good to meet someone from the south:)

HELLO AND emoticon YO THE TEAM
MYSELF I ALWAYS PLANTED MORNING GLORIES ALONG THE SIDE OF MT GARDEN SHACK (CEDAR LOGS) AND THE LITTLE VINES WERE A PAIN IN THE NECK AS THEY WOULD CATCH AND TWIST AROUND AND THROUGH THE SLITS BETWEEN THE LOGS, BUT THE FOLLOWING YEAR I WOULD PLANT THEM AGAIN VERY PRETTY

Hello everyone! Gardening is one of my favorite physical activities. It feels good to see your hard work pay off with beautiful blooms. I am also experimenting with an herb garden. I usually grow lettuce for my rabbits and guinea pig as well. I also have a nice row of hollyhocks and I'm debating whether to plant morning glory, I've heard they can become a nuisance. The last year or two we have had a drought in our area. Fingers crossed for the rains we need this year.

Hello, my name is Linda, and new to this team. I didn't find it until today on another person page and immediately hit the join key. I live in NW Iowa, where the last couple of days finially showed us a glimpse of spring. Then came today, was 72 at noon and now at 5pm it is 37, Like they always say, give Iowa weather 5 min and it will change. So, not thinking of gardening yet, but hope to soon. Glad to be a member of your team. Linda

CDT live on a country road near Alta, Iowa

I am going to watch the carbs.

I will keep a positive attitude.

I will learn the difference between an excuse and fact.

Hello all,
New to Spark People. Hit 50 and kept getting plumper. Looking around the site and what do I see gardening. Yay! I have been gardening for over 30 years and I seem to get spring fever earlier every year. I live in Colorado so one day it's 60 and the next it's 32. Snow in the morning and sunny in the afternoon. I have my house filled with so many starters, there is no place to eat. Anyway, hope to chat with many of you in the future and to be a "big loser" (weight that is) in time.

Gina
