    Good Morning!

    Just want to introduce myself...name is Maggie. I am quite young and this is my first time living away from my parents, recently moved in with my bf. His house is a complete bachlor pad, so I'm hoping once spring come I can start making it "ours". I'm from Ontario, fyi. Beware...that's all I have to say, I am a complete beginer to anything house/garden related. Hope I can find lots of help here.

    Thanks :)

    Hello from Wisconsin Maggie...I am sure you will learn a lot here and share all your gardening experiences with all of us. Do you plan on flowers outside? Container gardening is really fun too if you don't have the room or if you can't dig up the landlord's property... :-D

    Thanks! I can dig where ever...bf owns the house and said go for it. But I would like to try container everything. I actually bought a book about container gardening...but it's a bit complicated. And doesn't say anything about veggies...which I would love to try.

    A very warm welcome to you Maggie.

    You will find that the Stewbies is a great bunch of people and always willing to offer advise.

    Tell me you name Yamaha_gurl. - Are you into motorbikes (speed, wings), or pianos (music instruments) :?:

    I know the area well! I lived in Jackson's Point for 12 years! I still live fairly close and work in the area.

    Wow, love the bike and welcome. The very first and basically every year of gardening is a learning and self enlightening experience that I'm sure you are going to enjoy. Love the pic of you and hope bf catches the gardening bug.
