I grew up with a family who loved to garden. We experimented with many different things- flowers, fruits, vegetables, trees, etc. As I got older all I could think about during the winter was gardening. I am a planner, so I usually draw up a few different plans every year for the gardens. I start tomatoes and peppers every year from seed. I usually grow quite a large variety. It's very therapeutic for me.

Living the dream in central MN. Busy tending to a whole mess of fruits and veggies as well as too many chickens and ducks to count.
