Happy 1st Blogiversary to my Blog

Tomorrow it will one year since I started this blog. Boy, what a year it has been for our garden! We went from a very small urban garden to having the plots (the farm) at the community gardens too! I had only read a few blogs for a couple of months before I decided to start my blog. My initial thought was that it would make me keep record of my garden. I really had no idea it would turn out to be so much more.



My first follower was Dan and my second was Granny. I was so happy because they were two of the 3 blogs that I had been reading! The first garden blogger to post a comment was Granny! Today I have 80 followers and get a lot of wonderful comments daily on my posts, which mean so much to me.

I have to say that I sometimes feel like I don't show my appreciation as much as I should to all of my readers out there in blog land. I really admire how EG always thanks each and every new follower to his blog. I really had intended to do that as well. So, I am saying it now to each and every one of you who follow or read my blog....THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

I have learned so much from all of the great gardeners out there! It is so wonderful to be in touch with so many good people from around the world! You all keep me entertained and amazed on a daily basis, to say the least. I am grateful for all of the support, wonderful seeds & gifts received and the words of encouragement I have been given while starting those plots! When I come home tired or the weather holds me up, all of your kind words keep me going....they really do.


Yep, that's me and my computer! With that being said, I have to say thanks to my new good friend Granny.....Thanks so much for all your words of wisdom, being the pistol that you are and also being there for "The Italian" and I!!

Here' to a Great Gardening Year and Bountiful Harvests for all of us out there in blog land!!
