I am curious about YOU, because recently I was thinking about my own gardening time, how it started, how I made my first garden and what it made for me.
I see so many of you coming, not leaving a sign and I am curious about YOU. Who you are? do you garden? Do you own a blog?
So why not to start to know each other little better?
* Vote in the poll on the left side and tell us how long have you been gardening.
* Then if you could let us know in the comments below how, why you started gardening, that would be really great.
* If you have a blog, let us know in the comment as well.
The poll is closing on 15th of August 2013.
Here is my story.
I could call it Ewa’s Metallica Garden Story, because I have moved here and on the next day with my ex-husband and my son, drove 300 km to Metallica concert. It was May 31, 2004. So, if I ever forget what was the year it’s enough to google that concert. I am often surprised how many times I forget the year, though .
That is the answer to first part - I am gardening for 9 years. What is my big WHY? I was fed up with working at the big corporation, living in big city, and wanted to escape far far away. I mean really far. Deep forest, far from civilization. I wanted very much a change!
As practical solution we have chosen Komorow – little village 20 km from the center of Warsaw, because my son was still attending school in Warsaw and I didn’t want him to change it.
Oh, if you could see this garden in 2004, it was a true challenge. Bare, soil not maintained. I will always remember the hot first days and the sand in my teeth. You can see 3 years change in some before (2004) and after (2007) photos here. Maybe I shall make new before and after, as there are lot's of changes.
Then 3 years later I started this blog. I may say garden changed my life, because from the state of *having no life* I transformed to *awareness and having life* and that matters most for me.
So, this is my story. What is YOURS? I really care too hear your thoughts.
