but couldn't because of family health issues?

Turns out Instagram is a GREAT way for me to get back to that: answering questions from regular people and helping folks save money, water and energy by learning what to do (and what not to do).

IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO ANSWER ANY OF YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT THE LANDSCAPE, FOLLOW THIS LINK, double tap (if you're on your phone) and leave me a question in the comment section. Questions can range from pest management, trees, lawn, flowers, veggies, perennials, and "What's that bug?"

Gardening makes me so happy, but helping other people be happy in the garden is EVEN BETTER. <3

(Feel free to spread this to any and all, btw! And follow me on IG for more gardening tips, tricks, etc.)

I seriously DO need to make a list because all of this is a learning experience for me.

I know next year I need to 1) rip up my beds I have now (in front, full of rubble from hardscape stuff), 2) do soil amendment in back beds.

I'm also doing a dance of "wait until we put new fence in?" while sort of hoping we have JUST enough of a storm to knock fence down so we can replace it via insurance. :D (but it needs to be replaced. It's about having the $$).

BUT. This year, I had great success with mandevillas. I want to put them EVERYWHERE. And do some raised beds for my veg rather than container.

On top of all this, I need to be realistic. (and this is why I'm posting HERE.) With the lupus/mixed connective tissue disease OFFICIAL diagnosis this year, and applying for disability on realizing "yes, woman, you have problems", I'm trying to figure out a garden that will give me what I want, but be manageable. That can be neglected for a day or two even in mid summer because there are days going down 4 steps HURTS. Ya know?

That is very exciting! I don't have any idea how to interact on Instagram but I guess I'll learn!

Yay! I followed you. We moved to a 5 acre property that's mostly pasture for the horse but there's still some gardens that need work. The previous owners planted mint willy nilly right by the front door and it's kind of getting out of hand...

Awesome! And oh NO, mint can absolutely take over! It's easily controlled, though. But yay for the pasture for the horses!

I'm so happy for you!!!

I have actually been to Dallas a few times since I watch The Dallas Stars. There is hockey slash. I KNOW.

If you were up to it, and were amenable, I'd love to have coffee or just talk or have a donut. Whatever. I wish I had tried harder to connect IRL with so many people and now it's too late.

I'd like to maybe fix that a little. :-)
