    I don't know how many members are still here who remember me but I'm still here. Unfortunately no longer gardening.
    After several strokes and a brain bleed I had to give up living alone and sell the house along with the garden. I'm now in a retirement facility here in the desert. Atria in Palm Desert CA is a nice place but nowhere to garden.
    Just thought I'd drop by to say howdy.

    Glad to hear from you. I've moved from Arkansas to be close to the grandkids so now I'm learning city gardening in raised beds. A real learning experience.

    That's him!

    We and others have lots that we can learn from that kid :D. As well: It would really be great if you thought of us as playmates in the park. We are right here at hand.

    My grandmother was there until she passed away. It's a very nice place.

    Glad you're still hanging in there, but sorry to hear you can't garden anymore.

    Hoodat! Quite a few of us think of you often. You are missed. Now you can be the wise elder and teach the rest of us. We never stop learning and need teachers like you. Please garden through us.

    Hey, Hoodat! So glad to see you are still up and around. Gosh, you have had a lot of troubles the last few years, but I want you to know that you inspire me to keep on keeping on.
    When my mom was in a retirement center, there were little spaces the residents could garden. I wonder if your place has any such spots? Just a few square feet might be worthwhile.
    Please keep in touch with us, and know your knowledge is always welcome. :love
