Tell Us About Yourself
Let's get to know each other. My name is Vickie.I live in the ARK Ozark National Forest on 30 acres of hardwood forest. Because of trees,rocks and clay my flower beds are all raised which turned out good as i now have congestive heart failure,arthritis,diabetes,low thyroid and chronic depression. I can only work a little at a time. I have some herbs like the mints,sage,rosemary,lavender,mother wort,mugwort.
Some native plants,hostas,all kinds of spring flowers,which helps get rid of winter blues, iris,Daylilies.roses and other peranuals.
I've recently started adding some house plants for when i can't do much more outside.
As i said i only do a little at a time and feel proud of each square foot i do. my biggest problem is keeping myself up beat about such little progress.I've started using a shovel instead of a hoe to weed with as i can't handle that kinda sideways motion and using my foot is not as hard as using my arms.
I have 2 dogs a chihuahua,pug mix and a hound, blueheeler mix. Have 2 DD,s,one lives next door.2 GS,s and 2 GGC,s. Am 67.
I love to read mysterys,science mags,and gardening mags. I used to crochet and make quilts and different crafts but have'nt in awhile.
Thats about me. Now what about you,your problems and how you cope?
