  Giants 4

I must confess, when it comes to planning a garden, I often can’t stop myself.  It is in my blood to want to try more, do more and buy too much. I find this a hard thing to explain to my family. Last winter (2014) I found this cool shirt that said it all.

My heritage from a garden farming background has created an inner curiosity to try things.   I find myself drooling over pages in garden catalogs imagining each and every plant or seed growing in my garden.  I want to try every type of tomato plant, hot pepper and carrot variety just to name a few!!
