My father was in the Navy so I went to Forrest Sherman High School Naples Italy for 3 1/2 years. Returned to the United states and graduated from Rogers High School in Newport Rhode Island. Married Melvin G Uecker in 1976 and lived in Portland Maine for two years. Moved several more times as hubby was in the United States Coast Guard. Retired in Boerne, Texas, my hubby’s home town. Was happy to begin making roots at last and I worked for State Farm Insurance for 20 years. I enjoyed helping people with their claims and insurance needs. I retired in 2003 to take care of my 90 year young father.
I started gardening as a youngster with my Mom and helped till the soil with a pitchfork. I pulled weeds and picked veggies and it seemed like I was always going to labor in the garden until I found Joel Karsten’s book and learned an oh so easy way to grow veggies. I have been a Straw Bale Gardener for 4 years and belong to the Straw Bale Miracle Garden Group first as a member, then a moderator and now an administrator. I love gardening, canning and freezing my veggies. I also love camping, fishing, sewing and knitting . Most of all I love helping people. Gardening is my favorite pastime.
