Hi! I've been hanging around here for awhile.
I garden in Western Canada in a beautiful little warm micro-climate that makes up part of the Canadian Badlands. Rudyard Kipling once said we have all of hell for a basement.

This is my favorite quote. It was a little long for a signature so I'll share it here.
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conne a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, comfort the dying, set a bone, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

I have big dreams of owning land and creating a self-sustaining community in the future so I'm learning all I can. Looking forward to discussions with you all.

Thanks Cassie

I love your signature. I have an expanded version of it in the sidebar of my blog.

Thanks! Well, thanks on behalf of Walt Whitman. Yeah it is one of my all time favorite quotes. I love the extended version too, just a bit long for a signature.
