About me

I live on Long Island and work in Manhattan. My time is split between the two. I work in Business Development for a large global firm which demands a lot of my time. Gardening is my escape. I love to get my hands in the dirt and create a mini "oasis" in my garden for me to retreat to - my thinking place. Gardening is also an outlet for my creative self. It is that which connects us to the earth. I also love to grow all kinds of vegetables - as many as I can.

GoY is the best Garden forum on the web. It is dynamic, highly interactive, educational. A place to share, learn and grow and meet others who share that common interest. Thank You for reading my profile.
