Hi, I am new here so wanted to introduce myself. I will be 55 next month and my husband and I just got 12 acres in WV where we will be living off grid and growing our own food and making our own electricity.
I love plants and at one time had over 35 houseplants, but had to give most away when we moved to IN, as the cabin was small and not many good windows for plants. I still do not have many plants as we live in a trailer and windows are limited. I now have a dozen house plants. I also have to be careful how many I get as hubby does not like a lot of plants in the house. We are going to build a really little house so will have even less room. Not happy about that. I have had my Christmas cactus for over 30 years.
I hope to be able to have a nice flower garden along with the vegetable garden when we move. WE are also planning on doing Aquaponics to grow a lot of our veggies.
I just started growing some Wonder egg plants and they are doing awesome on my porch, although in this heat I have to water them nearly every day. May bring one in as a house plant. Not sure.
Well, I have prattled on enough. Just wanted to say hi.
