    Hello,

    My name is Araceli, and I live in the Bronx, NY. I am a California native, I've been in NY for almost 7 years. I never gardened when I was living in California but now that I am in NY, I am attempting to maintain a garden. It has been a complete nightmare that I've thoroughly enjoyed. I want to continue to garden as long as I have breath in my lungs, but I want to be smart about it because I can't afford to continue to make so many rookie gardening mistakes (literally, cannot afford it!).

    I am here because I want to learn from everyone as much as possible. I know that everything I'm trying to do in the garden...someone else has already done or tried to do. So if I can save myself a little trouble, I'd really appreciate it!

    Sincerely,
    Araceli (aka JardinDelBronx)

    Hi. :)
    What are you growing? What specific problems are you having?

    That's quite a move, from California to NYC!

    :LOL::ROFLMAO:Welcome Araceli. I really enjoyed your intro and believe me, i can relate. The people on this site are so nice. There are some new gardeners and some experienced gardeners and we are all learning and sharing information and experiences together with humor and respect. There are no dumb questions, so don't hesitate:)

    Welcome Araceli. :) As Beverly says above, there are new gardeners as well as experienced here but we are all still learning - it's an endless subject.

    Hi Beth_B,

    My main problem is a squirrel problem that I've been dealing for the past 3 years. I have tried many different methods to deter them from digging up seeds/seedlings. I think sometimes it's been cats and raccoons digging in the containers as well.

    I think I need to start a new topic in the forum to explain the whole situation. I'll do that now and see if I can tag you in it.

    Thanks!
    -Araceli

    Hiya JardinDelBronx, I myself have just joined and thoroughly enjoying it :). As has been said before, we are all always learning, that's the joy of gardening I think and we learn from our mistakes but isn't it great to have opinions and help from all over the world in this forum? Looking forward to seeing what you have coming up this season. :)

    and sometimes there is no "right" or "wrong". what is "right" for one garden (and gardener) is "wrong" for another garden (gardener) so we are always working things out. we do learn from our mistakes, and our learning is never ending and how can we become bored? i find that just about every day i go to the garden there are surprises, something observed never observe before. mother nature is so full of surprises, some happy, some not so much for us gardeners. this new crop of gardeners just joining GF is a bumper crop and will add a lot to the conversations and i am happy to see you here:)
