"My garden is a complete mess, as I just returned from a trip to Spain and quickly dove back into work. I am a teacher, so the lazy days of summer are behind me and I hope I can catch up before fall planting time. I thought I'd share…"
"Chris- I am so impressed when people use small spaces so wisely. The love of coaxing something to grow, regardless the container or plot of land, is what ties us all together in our love of gardening. One of my favorite gardens was…"
Accept for tomatoes and okra, just about everything else is already done for the season. July and August are rest seasons here in Florida, as it is too hot to grow much. It's also our rainy season so mold is growing on the…"
"A rather measly harvest, but I am thrilled nonetheless. Here is the glass gem corn I grew! It's a popcorn, but I think I will save it for seed and decoration. I love the variety in the kernel colors."

Hi. I'm fairly new, so I checked your profile. I'm a retired middle school science teacher. I also do volunteer service trips for a group called Wilderness Volunteers. Check them out (.org). Trouble is, most of their trips are out west, although I've done 3 in Florida (Caladesi I., off Dunedin).
Hi Annie! It's great that you (as an Atheist that know great deal of science) are teaching science at a private elementary school. ...I always thought that private schools were Christian or some kind of religious schools.
My oldest son lived in Gainesville until he graduated this year in May. He studied electrical engineering at UF. During the first months, after he moved there, we drove from Sanford to Gainesville every other weekend to spend some time with him. The same week when he graduated he was offered a full-time position at a big company in Orlando as an associate engineer (we all were very happy for him). My other two sons (13 and 16) have always been home-schooled, but maybe next year, they will go to a traditional school.
