A Little About Me
I became interested in gardening as a child. My parents were avid gardeners and I often helped them harvest tomatoes, sweet peppers, beans, cucumbers and so on. A few years ago, I successfully grew Dendrobium and Phalaenopsis orchids and sold the plants and flowers.
Recently, together with my sister and nephew, we started gardening again and have been growing tomatoes, cabbages, sweet peppers, hot peppers, potatoes, spinach and a wide variety of herbs.
I live in the Caribbean on the beautiful island of Barbados and the biggest challenge we have is safeguarding our gardens from the monkey population. Every year these creatures cause farmers and gardeners thousands of dollars in damage to plants and produce.
In spite of that, we are fortunate to enjoy wonderful weather year round. Cool tropical breezes and lovely sunshine makes it a pleasure and very easy to enjoy this therapeutic and relaxing activity.
Happy gardening to you! And remember: friends are flowers in the garden of life.
