Welcome!

Happy Spring to everyone, even though it does not appear to be spring yet in many parts of the United States. Here in Pensacola, Florida it has been a cold, rough winter. We had many cloudy, damp, cold days with winds coming out of the north, instead of the warm tropical winds from the south. I was able to grow a winter garden though and that was a fun endeavor. My cabbages, brocoli, and kale grew quite well in the protection of my shed and neighbor’s fence.

Here is a picture of my grand children with the last of the cabbages. Gardening in this part of the Gulf Coast is quite a challenge in the summer. I hope to share some of my tricks and mistakes along the way so others and can enjoy the peace of gardening in Northwest Florida. Please follow my gardening saga and share your tips and tricks that you may find helpful to the rest of us struggling gardeners out there. Along the way, I want to share my other interests such as crocheting, jewelry making, reading, crafting, baking and weight loss and exercise tips. Join me in my journey into retirement as I silver thread my way to a more fulfilling life style.
