I'm a happy wife, mom of 3, mother-in-law to 2, grandmother to 4 with 2 more on the way. I've had multiple sclerosis since 1986. I have trouble remembering things and keeping on track so I took up knitting to create new neuro pathways. And I've always loved to grow things. I grow a lot of weeds but my vegetables and flowers are looking better every year as I improve my soil. This year I harvested thornless blackberries, strawberries, tomatoes, green beans,broccoli, peppers and lots of herbs. I was late getting in my greens so I'm going for it this fall. The heat gets to me and my energy wanes quickly but I do what I can and that's good enough!
