Homesteading in MD

Post  Terp Gardener on 5/11/2015, 2:55 pm

Hi all - we have a small homestead (2 acres) near Frederick, MD.  Here's praying that our livestock, puppy or 3 small children don't undo all that we are attempting to create in our beautiful beds.  We are new to gardening & are learning as we go.  Thanks in advance for all the wisdom

Yup - for everything.  Strawberries, veggies & flowers.  We're an all-in type of family.

Hi Cathy:

I'm your "neighbor" in Glen Burnie. I also homeschooled my children (now adults).
