I am Lucy and I love growing plants.

In the summer I work on a 700 square feet plot in a community garden in Upstate New York (USDA Zone 5). I also have some plants living in my home.

I am married and have a degree in science field. Besides gardening, I enjoy hiking, plant breeding, science projects and long drives.

I wanted to write a blog for quite a while. This journal is an attempt to mix gardening notes with random musings about the world. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Lucy,
    You beat me at being Angela's first follower, so I came to your blog, and see that you are new at it, too. I am in Nebraska, zone 5b. I have noticed that there are differences in what I can grow compared to those in the same zone in the east.

    I may get to be your first follower. I am very scatterbrained, though, and have so many blogs I follow, that I don't get to visit each one as often as I'd like to.

    Welcome to the world of blogging,

    1. Hi! Thank you for a kind welcome. You are indeed the first follower!
