New to this site - intro

greenthumbs2000January 25, 2007

good afternoon, i can't believe it took me this long to find this wonderful site!

I live and garden in eastern tennessee, i am particularly fond of old-fashioned plants such as confederate rose, iris, cannas; but i'll try to grow anything at least once. I am originally from germany, so i love to grow european varieties (wallflowers, barlow aquilegias in my flower gardens, salsify, european plums, european elder, currants, etc in my vegetable and berry patches.)

right now, the hellebore are beginning to bloom and the winter jasmine is about finished in our yard.

i have already seeded out the carrots, a german winter lettuce called feldsalad, and kohlrabi in the raised bed.

thank you for letting me introduce myself. i have enjoyed reading several pages of posts and love the beautiful hellebore picture Joseph posted.

Welcome Belle!! so glad you found this forum, I've just now enjoyed reading your post - this time of year esp nice to read of everyone' activities - I learn so much here, and sounds like you'll be another wonderful source of info! - since you're in East TN, maybe you'll come to the spring plant swap.

Hi! I am also new to this site AND new to tennessee......yes, I'm a Yankee, but love my new surroundings. I've been here about a year and have lots of gardening questions as my hobby is so very different out here. I am looking forward to the Middle Tennessee Plant Swap and can't wait to meet some new friends! Also looking forward to chatting with some of you on here. Hope to hear from "Y'ALL" soon!! - - -> Lisa
