Introduction for New Co-Regional Host

Post  mschaef on 9/10/2013, 11:46 pm

Hello to everyone,

I am excited to be a co regional host with cheyannarach!! I am looking forward to helping with everyone questions and hope that I will be able to fill at least part of the shoes for a regional host.

Now a little bit about me and my gardening journey.
I grew flowers when I was young; my favorite was and still is impatient. My dad always would joke about that being the perfect flower for me because I was very impatient. When I moved out on my own I was unable to garden for a while being in the college dorm. Gardening finally made an appearance back into my life after having my first baby. Two weeks after he was born my husband deployed for a year to the desert. I left Omaha, Nebraska where we were stationed and moved in with my in laws in Burlington, North Carolina. My mother in law was starting her first 3 4x4 that summer. I jumped right in and helped with baby in tow. Hubby came home. I returned home thinking that I could start my own Square Foot Garden but just after 5 months of having hubby home and before the snow could melt to start my garden he got sent again to the desert. This time it was for just for 6 month but I still willing went back to my in laws and their wonderful garden. After this deployment and with no more on the horizon I decided to make my own garden in base housing. For many of you who do not know about the military housing they really don’t like that you destroy the grass with a garden…ops…but it was worth it. I even convinced my hubby to expand and build more boxes for me over the years of living at that house. At one point I had 1-4x4, 2-2x2, and 2-1x1. It was wonderful until the military decided it was time for us to move to a new duty station. I learned during that move that the movers will not move Mel’s mix or boxes, period. So I said my good byes to my Mel’s mix and boxes and packed my ANSFG book. Upon arrive at our new and current duty station in Great Falls, Montana I went looking for a way that I could garden. Hubby said no to building boxes and having them put on the grass. Housing said yes to table tops mention that they could change their minds at a later date if they didn’t like them so they were out. I even tried to have boxes built and just have them on my porch. I finally and grudgingly decided to join the community garden in Great Falls and just plant in the soil. Well as the snow started to melt the base decided to utilize an empty plot right near my house with a community garden. I signed up and now have a nice in ground garden within a 5 min walking distance from my house. The reason it is in the ground and not boxes with Mel’s mix like I want is because hubby says that we cannot afford to put that kind of money out just to have to leave it again. Which does make sense but still it’s not fair…
So that’s my gardening journey…for now I will be content with the wonderful garden that I have and drooling over everyone else's gardens; I look forward to helping to answer your question and assist everyone with their gardens to the best of my ability. Let’s make our region the one that everyone wants to be part of…
