About Me:
I grew up in Quebec City Canada working in the garden with my dad, eating fresh veggies from the garden all summer. These are some of the best memories of my childhood.

Being in the brown dusty desert I crave green spaces so my garden helps me feel good. I no longer trust veggies sold at the store since I had my first pesticide allergic reaction after moving to the USA 10 years ago. I hope to learn new tips and tricks and mostly I look forward to exchanges with other members of the guild. I believe that gardening is very community oriented and makes the world a better place. Green space is limited and I am looking to optimise space use and lower cost.

When my hands are not dirty I love to knit or crochet, my dream home would have a green house, some crops, live stock and an alpaca herd.

This is my first season with my own garden, ever! I had some challenges, our puppy - a beautiful hyper active and veggie hungry husky - destroyed my garden in a major way 2 times plus one "minor" incident. So far the best crops I have been able to harvest are radish, carrots and a variety of lettuce that still make the best salad bowl on the block. We are now hopeful for tomatoes, the ones the dog did not get to are full of promises :)

Thank you, QuebecGirl! It has been a wonderful experience, though not without challenges. What's been your best crop so far this year?

Thanks for welcoming me! So is this problem with your banana peppers happening with the peppers themselves, or on the leaves? Maybe you can take a picture?

I had some peas growing that I ripped out to put in cucumbers. It seemed like once the weather warmed the peas started dying off. But... those cucumbers are growing quick and already producing enough for me to harvest.
