Hello fellow gardeners. I am excited about exchanging gardening ideas with other folks! I’ve been gardening for the last 50 years, and although I have learned a lot, I am by far not “the master”. Every year and every new location poses challenges and learning opportunities. I moved to the Helena area 2 years ago from NW Montana, and have been on a pretty steep learning curve! I’m hoping this site will be my cozy space to learn from others, as I am not on social media.

Hello @Suzee so happy to have you join us on TEG. I have been a member for 12 years! An awesome bunch of gardeners and I am still learning. Also, I am from the mid-west. East Central Iowa. About 10 miles from the Mississippi.

Welcome from the San Francisco bay area! My growing climate is so different from yours. But looking forward to getting to know you.

Good Afternoon Suzee. Welcome ! And, I hope you enjoy and are successful in Helena 😎.

Where were you in NW Montana?

Helena. I would think the challenge would mostly be, gardening at 4,000 feet elevation at over 46° North latitude.

Steve, here near 48 degrees North and at a much lower (2,000 ft) altitude.

Welcome from British Columbia! I have always wanted to visit Montana-- maybe I will get there in the coming years.

There is so much to learn about gardening, and I hope that you will find your happy place here at The Easy Garden! :)

Hi @Suzee ! :frow

Welcome to the forum!

We love pictures here ;) I have seen photos of Montana online and it looks like a special kind of Heaven! ⛰️
My first husband and I literally ran away from CA in the 70s and never looked back. Mt. Is truly the last best place. We spent 40 years on the Bull River near the Idaho border. After raising 3 kids in a log cabin, and losing my first husband, I was fortunate to meet a wonderful guy from the Helena area. He has built me a nice garden, a shop and is my hunting guide as well!
