I am very fortunate and blessed to make a new friend . My neighbor that lives above me . Her name is Flora and she is 83 years young! Her daughter hired me to help clean up the yard for it's mowing of the spring and to get the garden ready for the year.
She has a great raised garden which she was excited to get started. Unfortunately she was very weak from being sick over the winter. She has very Loving children but they knew they would not be able to get that garden up and running for her the way she wanted with their own lives being so busy.
As I stood there pulling weeds from the garden I thought back on the wonderful raised garden Carl my Sweetheart had went we met. We have not had a garden in years of renting. Now we are buying our place!
We had just moved here in Jan. with no intentions of trying to garden this year, because we knew it would take a while to get our yard under control enough to even think about a garden?
Then her daughter Lane told me , I needed to see her Mother's frig door . She said ," You know how most women her age would have pictures of their Grandchildren , Her's is covered with Garden pictures!"
Well the more i thought on it the more i knew that I needed to talk to Carl and see if He would be interested in Sharing a garden with Ms Flora ?
Well that's what happened !
We started out with the garden spot below in April . Wait till You see what happened!
