Hi from Washington state. I'm totally new at this, have never posted on a forum before. I'm looking forward to learning and also sharing with folks of like mind out there. I'm an avid gardener and sure wish spring would settle in! I live on the east side of the state where it gets quite hot and dry. We also experience very cold and snowy winters and I'm ready for the nice weather and to get going on my garden. Pleased to meet all of you......
