Garden Babies - Marsha K.

My yard is my garden. As time and money permit, I add a bed here or a plant there. I often rescue plants from friends or relatives who think one has died or doesn't fit where it is or they don't like it - whatever. It seems each plant has a story. That's one reason why I will never move to another house. How could I leave my "babies?"

When You Garden, You Grow!

Every April communities, organizations, and individuals nationwide celebrate gardening during National Garden Month. Gardeners know, and research confirms, that nurturing plants is good for us: attitudes toward health and nutrition improve, kids perform better at school, and community spirit grows. Join the celebration and help to make America a greener, healthier, more livable place!
