|A few acres to garden close to town was our dream come true. As a Master Gardener I couldn't wait to start planting! But before we could close on the house and property hurricane Francis and Jeanne devastated the area. We looked at the swampy mess with trees down, giant holes full of water where the roots of majestic old trees had been. My sweet husband shook his head at a water filled hole, "I think we should tear up the contract" he said sadly. With a glimmer of hope I smiled and said,"I see PONDS!" and so began our ponding journey!
