I’ve never been a gardener other than just a dabbling here or there, mostly container type gardening and mostly beautification gardening other than some tomatoes, peppers, and herbs.

10 years, he’s kept me around for 10 years! That’s a record for us, we’ve both been married not once but twice before. Seems like that old adage is true “third times the charm”.
