I come from a family of gardeners, but I could first formally call myself a gardener when I signed up for the Gardening Project in 4-H as a ten-year old and continued with that project for ten years. For a long time I did not have much in the way of gardens myself, but I helped my mother-in-law with her garden and canning for many years. That lady gardened in a big way!
In 1983 I took the Master Gardeners course in Wisconsin, but didn't take on that volunteer work then because my first husband was already disabled. Some years after he passed away I met Joe. He had just become a Master Gardener himself and coaxed me to sign up when he found out that I had taken the training and thought that I would find it to be a lot of fun. He was right, it was a lot of fun (and so was he).
Not too long after we married we moved to Saint Paul in 2000 and have been gardening and volunteering in this part of the world ever since.
