I grew up as a tomboy who thought gardening in all forms was "girly" and "stupid". Once I grew up and moved out of my parent's home and got married, I became really interested in sustainability and nutrition. This has blossomed into a real passion for learning about all things gardening, permaculture, farming, and homesteading. I put down my magazines and now I read seed catalogs while I jot down notes like it's a school book.

My husband has always been the one to deal with gardening things, and his knowledge is just passed down bits from his grandfather's before him. This year, he will be working very hard and won't have much time to dedicate to our garden. I have a lot of book knowledge (and I'm gaining more all the time), but I don't have much hands on practice.

I'll probably have a lot of questions and I'm excited to have lots of people here who just might have some answers

Welcome and I'm sure that all your questions will have prompt answers as there are a lot of keen eyes all over these forums.

You may wish to fill in a little info about your climate and growing conditions within your profile. That goes a long way in helping other permies to make climate specific suggestions for you as well as to meet other permies in your area who may offer extra special advice. You'll find tons of info and help here and lots of new ideas. Feel free to fire away with your questions.
Best wishes
