I have been an avid gardener since I was in high school which is several years ago. My husband and I live in the northern part of South Dakota. We have a huge vegetable garden which is eaten, given away and canned before the snow hits. I also try to grow flowers and can jelly and applesauce which my grandson loves to take home with him each time he visits. We have three grown daughters and two young grandchildren. We are teachers by profession, but I have stepped back from that to be a part-time Pastor at a small church in a neighboring town. Hope you stop by to visit our garden now and then.
