    Hello all,

    I live out near Sacramento, California, near the foothills. I have two small vegetable/fruit gardens and about twenty fruit/nut trees. Thanks to COVID, I find myself with a lot of free time on my hands, so I am hoping to spend some of that time with like-minded individuals such as yourselves. :)

    Welcome to the Stew, Spector! We are on a small farm in central Texas, with vegetable and flower gardens, and a small orchard. We are both retired, but haven't found that we have a lot of free time on our hands. Just wait, your time will fill up with gardening and harvesting.

    Hello Spector and welcome to the best gardening forum on the net. I come from Scotland where the weather is never the same two days running. It certainly makes gardening here a challenge!!

    Hi Spector, welcome to the Stew from New England. I retired a year and a half ago and still find myself quite busy! How you enjoy this community.
