Winter is here. We have actually had nights with below freezing temperatures. I had to move the tangerine tree inside because of the cold. The tree had one fruit left and it did ripen...to my surprise.
A community garden was created at the local library where my four year old attends storytime. It provides patrons to claim raised beds free of charge. The beds are larger than my bed in my back yard, so I plan to request one for the spring. All gardening equipment is supplyed and stored in storage building next to the gardens, behind the library. My daughter and I went to look at the gardens after story and craft time. We met a gardener named Lee. He showed us his garden and was gracious enough to supply me with kale and broccoli that he had grown. That is how gardeners are, always sharing. Lee says he just gets a thrill out of gardening. He lives within walking distance and comes over regularly and takes care of the garden.

Welcome to my gardening blog. My father passed to me a love for gardening. I wanted to share this passion with my girls, so they would know the origin of their food. (not the local grocery store). So, I dedicated myself to giving them what my father gave me; and if I can inspire someone to garden, the reward is even greater.
