I've been gardening since I was 4 years old, and just recently acquired my first small flock of backyard chickens. I grew up in West Texas during the Seven Year Drought in the 50's and lived in Barstow for four years as an adult, so I have some familiarity with desert living. However, the Sonora desert is different from the Mojave, and I have a lot to learn. I've grown organic veggies in Lakeside and I want to learn how to grow them here. However, I've never composted and want to learn how, especially now that I have an excellent source of raw fertilizer from my little flock. Also, I definitely want to learn how to make my hens more comfortable in the heat. I lived on a horse ranch in Lakeside, have had several horses of my own, and specialize in grooming and nursing injured or sick ones back to health. I'm a retired Publications Coordinator with a background in graphic design, and I love to write and draw, although I haven't had time until recently to do much of the latter.
