I have always enjoyed working in the garden, planning and planting. I used to have a great vegetable garden before life became so busy raising four children. As a new "empty nester" this is the year I will try to start again-something small and easily manageable. I am also hoping to get some flowers out in pots and in a bed or two. I just need the ol' body to cooperate for a few hours a week...
