Hi everyone! I used to frequent this site often, about 10 years ago! I had to give up on vegetable gardening for a short time, but now am in the process of building my dream garden.
I’m Sarah from California, zone 9b. I hope to make everyone’s acquaintance once again!

Hi, Sarah :frow!

You were very involved in gardening then and looking forward to new seasons. Link to one of your last posts

I was relating to a couple of gardeners recently that I just might fade away, if I was not gardening. Fade away in more ways than one, perhaps ;).

Good to have you back :).

Steve

welcome back from mid-Michigan. :) you were here before my time started. what is your dream garden like?
My dream garden is raised beds with hardware cloth at the bottom to keep out gophers, higher fencing to keep out deer and lots of garden space! It’s definitely a work in progress, but so far I’ve built 5 of 6 beds that are 4’x20’, and a couple of smaller beds. I’ve salvaged the wood from my kids old play structure and included fun elements like the play steering wheel for nostalgia! I’m hoping to make it aesthetically pleasing as well as very productive!

Wow! I remember those days! Working out of wine barrels was not easy, and the gophers didn’t take too long to dig through them! Those buggers are aggressive out here! Thanks so much for the warm welcome back.

Hello from Alabama!

I'd love to see a picture of your raised beds :)
Sure thing! Like I mentioned, the garden is under construction, and my cattle panel trellis are not yet attached and a little off centered! I picked up 10’x3’ roofing panels and hubby helped split them lengthwise into thirds
