Hello from Southern Illinois

I'm a 58 year old grandmother of six, the oldest of whom my husband have been raising since his parents passed.
I was a stay at home mother until my children got in school, when I built a small greenhouse and started my own business. It grew and grew, until 22 years and jillions of pentunias and tomato plants later, my back finally gave out on me and I retired.
My husband and I both enjoy cooking and trying new things. I look forward to making friends and sharing recipes.
