Hello Shelly, Sorry that you were going through a hard time....I have not been checking in here for a while....hope you are feeling better by now. incidentally, i just wanted to mention that my husband and I help MS patients....through holistic health.... our website is www.drdougbeech.com
Oh Goodness I know what you mean by over planting....I do that all the time...I have to curb my enthusiasm....last year it was the green chillies for me.....WAAAAAYYY toooo many!!
Anyway Enjoy this wonderful weather and the outdoors! I am just overwhelmed and grateful for all the blooms in my garden this year!
Shelly, I am pretty involved with MS. My sister-in-law has it and I work at a rehab hospital promoting our MS program. I will also be walking for MS on Saturday, April 30th, in my home town here in Maine. I totally understand. For my sister-in-law, she loves her gardens. I have just introduced her to this site. Please feel free to friend her: Kara. She may respond and may not, but I am sure you guys could share your love for gardening.
"Yeah but you get heaps colder, so I,m sure you feel your heat the same as I feel mine. The plants don,t like our heat however , what I grow would not survive if I did not water them during summer. In fact a lot of people have stopped growing plants…"

"Thank you Keryn, you obviously are fertilizing just right! Mine are indoors, but it has been a relatively cool summer. I will try just a little fertilizer. At least the plants look healthy and still alive!"
