The purpose of this blog is to document my challenges in establishing my home garden .
I readily admit to being a novice gardener however I do possess a pioneer spirit and hold onto hope that I can transform my backyard into an organic oasis.
I have learned that my piece of Paradise has none of the rich, friable, earth that other gardeners possess to grow in. It is basically made up of sand devoid of all nutrients. Hence my signature display name - sanddune.
My goals are:
1- To transform my garden without spending a lot of money on plants, supplies and products.
2-To reuse materials I have on hand that I would have previously just thrown away.
3- To gradually convert my Gardening methods to organic ones.
4-To make friends and gather knowledge from other gardeners on the web who actually know how to accomplish the above listed goals.
5- To improve my limited skills and knowledge in how to use this stupid computer!
So therein lies my challenge.
Keeping these lofty goals in mind and my steadfast Yorkshire Terrier, (Odette) , by my side I'm ready to get get started.
