Hi Tom! Do you live here in Northeast Florida? I am here in Jacksonville. This is my first day on the road to Transformation and I am really excited. Any info or tips you have for me would be so great. Already got in my workout and just got back from getting all my fruits and veggies. Have a good one!

Well, we are in our first Spring in our new home, and the landscape has been "let alone" for at least 4 or 5 years. I spent the weekend battling Nature to try to re-domesticate the land. My arms and legs are scratched bloody due to the fight (thorny vines were choking azaleas and climbing trees and electric lines - some Florida plants come with sharp spikes and razor-sharp fronds). I've got the first sunburn of the year - a new record for early sunburns for me. We've had a big bonfire to burn off piles of dead branches, etc. - and we're going to need another one. I've got a new "compost heap" that is up to my eye level, and I'll be starting another one. I've completed maybe half of the task and I'm already pooped. Don't underestimate Nature - she's tough. Work on organizing and re-modeling the "warehouse" storage building will wait while I clear the land, transplant some shrubs and other plants from our old home, and start my vegetable garden (weather & the growing season are setting the priorities).
BY THE WAY: Heck, yeah, I'm in the challenge - starting today!! I'll post some START photos later.
