By now you obviously know of my passion for gardening. What you probably don’t know is in my former life I was a competitive skier. That’s right. 6 days a week on the hill 5 months a year. Dryland training in spring summer and fall, strength training cardio; if it was grueling we did it.

I was sponsored which meant I got all new equipment every year. My school, Carrabassett Valley Academy, did a good job of recycling our old stuff – giving it to the Special Olympics, selling it to raise money for school and community projects and just plain giving some away. But I am sure plenty got tossed in the bin.
