Hi! My name is Sondra and I am relatively new to gardening (about 3 years), so I decided I should keep record of my experience through blogging.
Over the past few years, I have started to eat healthy and thought gardening would be a perfect hobby. There is only one small problem, besides a few tomato plants, I really didn’t know what I was doing! This is all trial and error.
So why Reclaimed Gardening? I love taking old ‘junk’ and saving a few bucks! I constructed an entire garden using Craigslist, auctions, and bargains anywhere I could find them. Now I have my own little piece of heaven that will keep me busy! You can find the construction here.
I married my high school sweetheart, who I met when I was 14 years old on the school bus. We just celebrated our 10-year anniversary on May 31st. We do own 3 dogs though (a Lab/Shepherd mix, Jack Russell Terrier and an English Bulldog).
My husband is a high-school teacher and I taught fifth grade for 7 years but quit for a variety of reasons. Infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss top the list of reasons why I left. If you want to follow my recurrent pregnancy loss battle you can check out this blog:
These are the posts that I came out about our infertility
In order to quit, take care of myself, and to be happy. We made some sacrifices. I couldn’t ask for a more supportive husband.
My husband loves restoring classic GM cars. I don’t really help him, but I support his hobby. I love photography, but I don’t really know what I’m doing here either, but I’m learning. I also love crafting, spending time with my family and cooking.
