I'm Goldcat. My home is currently in New Jersey, near Princeton, where we have been getting hit with those monster storms in the past week. My vegetable garden is under ice, which is really frustrating because I had been getting it ready for planting in the nice weather we had had before the storms. I love gardening!
@derekfreeman is my son. He also is into gardening, as you may know from his posts on AR Homesteading. He's an awesome guy! :)
While I have many interests, gardening is most important to me because I am passionate about creating a wildlife habitat in my yard using only native plants. My dream is to heal the planet by restoring, as much as possible, original flora and fauna. I want to save the species that are struggling to survive in their native habitats because they are constantly losing ground. Trees get cut down indiscriminately and non-native plants, put here by unknowing people, do not service the pollinators in the area, they do not feed the local birds and other wildlife. They often overtake the native plants, such as Kudzu has done in the southeast. Saving the planet is a tall order, that's why I'm starting with my yard.
I have an enclosure where I plant vegetables... and mix in wildflowers. I have a milkweed, monarch butterfly garden and have watched many caterpillars pupate eventually turning into magnificent monarchs. Oh, I also made a frog pond! Everything is a work in progress at this point.
I'm looking forward to this new adventure on Steemit. It's a challenging website!
P.S. Do pictures usually load this big?
