I’ve been working in my gardens for most of my life, and have always dreamed of making a living out of playing in the dirt.
For now, I enjoy working the yard, creating gardens that are inch by inch eliminating the grass! My mom thinks that is my ultimate goal, and she may be right! The mostly cloud-covered days of Irwin, PA (Hardiness Zone 5a), located about 25 miles east of Pittsburgh, presents its challenges, but much of the year can be spent comfortably working outside. The few months of snow coverage offer a break from the outdoors and provides the opportunity to test my skills at indoor gardening!
I tend to think of my yard as my therapist, and each session there brings me closer to my self. Pulling weeds – the ultimate!
It strikes me that not everyone enjoys working in the yard. My dad instilled that love in me, and my favorite childhood memories with him revolve around seeds, planting, weeding, and harvests.
It’s so exciting when I do find a kindred spirit who shares that love. Thanks for stopping by!
