  1. Hi,
    I’m a new backyard gardener learning by trial and error and watching others. I love eating what i grow and sharing…its I think what I’ll transition to after i retire, dont really plan to retire as im in nursing, but plan to enjoy my garden more and work less. As i get older its a great past time that gives back. Also learning about flowers for pollinating and herbs for health…interested in learning about canning and preserving TY senior planet happy I found y’all very helpful
