I am a 40-something wife (24 great yrs and counting) and mom (one 17yo lovely daughter who's also my friend). I have loved the feeling of warm dirt in my hands since I was a toddler. I inherited the love of gardening from both my grandfathers, and I will always be grateful for that gift. I lived most of my life on the Eastern Shore of MD, where there is wonderful sandy soil. For the last 7 years, I've lived in northern MD, where there is much clay in the soil. I'm still learning how to work with it, but my labors (and those from the previous homeowners) are paying great dividends. My 1874 farmhouse looks lovely all 4 seasons due to the many trees, bushes, and various other plantings. I also have a very nice vegetable garden spring-fall, which I'm still experimenting with, having planted the whole garden from seed for the first time last spring. I would be truly lost if I could no longer garden!

I am so thrilled to be able to say that it is finally feeling like spring in my part of MD. We would have 2 warm days, followed by several cold days (40’s) with rain that felt like icy fingers tapping all over us as we went about errands and...
