Everything in excess is opposed to Nature – Hippocrates
Hello. My name is Lucy and I am an excessive gardener. I have been gardening on and off over the years in various USDA Plant Hardiness Zones. I moved to Zone 10a from Zone 7b last winter . My problem is that I am consumed by my fondness of plants. I can’t pass by a Home Depot or Lowe’s without stopping in to make a quick purchase at the gardening center.
I am a Biological Anthropologist with a lot of free time: I had Stage III cancer and did not weather the cancer treatment so well. That said, I have become pathologically immersed in the ecosystem present in my yard, in particular: insects that eat my plants and lizards, lots of lizards, that need to step up and eat the frigging insects. I am not growing a garden, I am defending it.
Won’t you follow me as I face pestilence, locusts, frogs falling from the sky, and dodge heavy limbs hurtling towards Earth from the “mostly dead” tree? There will be plant care and gardening tips; backyard science, humor and commentary.
