Now you can garden from the comfort of your computer!

This site is very interesting, you can plant seeds and water plants in a real garden! I am waiting for my password to come through, I'll let you know how I get on!

My mother grew up on a farm, so she always had big gardens where ever we lived when I was growing up. I guess it just "took" with me - I've always loved to garden, and was looking forward to it during retirement.

For a variety of reasons we bought a home for our future retirement in the Tucson area last year. The house and the area have a lot going for them, but unfortunately gardening isn't one of them. I may just have to be content with the virtual type.

*BLUSH*!!
Sorry folks, that's the danger of me posting on two different sites when I'm half asleep!
The correct link has been added now.
My password still hasn't come through, but you can visit the garden as a guest. You need to register to be able to plant seeds and water plants.

Jim, I am trying to remember gardens I have noticed that were located in Arizona...there is a landscape architect named Steve Martino who does sleek gardens..you might find him on Google. I think I saw a garden of his recently in Garden Design magazine. Ah, but I might be mixing that up with Sunset Magazine. I hardly ever read either of them anymore, but did see both fairly recently.

Ossobuco - thanks for the suggestions.

The soil in our area is what they call "decomposed granite" - I suspect it would take years of mulching before much of anything would grow in it. Also, we're out in the boondocks with all the wild critters. I'm told the herds of wild pigs (javelinas) devastate anything in their path.

I had weeds grow happily in my decomposed granite paths in Venice, California...dandilions, for example. Javelinas, wow!!

Computer gardening is no fun! You must get your hands dirty with the dirt to really enjoy gardening. The rewards are to see the plants mature and bare flowers and/or fruits. It's amazing to see some plants that seems to be on its deathbed come back to life and flower. I love my garden. It brings me serenity, peace, and much needed excercise in my retirement. c.i.

Turns out that I never did get sent a password to become a member of the garden - maybe they have enough members already; I imagine it may get quite chaotic when thousands of folks log on and water and rewater the garden all day long Smile
Luckily enough I have a real garden, which provides more than enough opportunities to keep me occupied Smile

Jim - how about container gardening? You can fill your planters with good dirt and won't have to amend the soil you have now.

We have both container and in-ground plants. Having containers around the garden adds character to the garden. Our Chinese wisteria is all in bloom right now. c.i.
