What We Are Growing In Our Gardens (Or In Our Lives)

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]What are you growing in your garden this season? Or (for the non-gardeners) what hobby are you currently pursuing?

  • About 18 years ago my wife and I completely replanted our yard, front and back.  Recent heavy snowstorms have seriously damaged several small trees and bushes.  The three maples we planted in the back yard have finally grown together, providing lots of shade.  Unfortunately, between these two, I’m having to dig out and re-design the planting areas, some things just are not happy with all the shade!  So, no garden but I’ll have lots of fun picking out new plants.  Lots of other projects to work on, going to be a busy summer for me.
  • As a condo resident, I have no garden, so I scratch that itch for dirt under my fingernails garden. Iris are at their peak. Beautiful!
