I started gardening about 3 years ago when I moved into my Husband's Grandmothers house. She was born and raised on a farm and loved gardening. The first spring in our yard was amazing. Every morning my daughter and I would wake up and explore to see what new and exciting blooms were waking up with us. Grandma Verna only planted the border and she didn't believe in watering so there was still so much possibility.

This is when it all started. The Nurseries were too expensive for our budget so my three year old and I would begin sowing, indoors at night. Because it was a whole new experience for both of us, the amazing transformation from seed to flower, we were astonished and hooked together. We have "our" vegetable garden, I have "Mom's" flower borders and she has "her" berry/flower/fun vegetable garden. Towards the end of the season, when I am too tired to drag the hose around, it is my three year old who motivated me, and in effect keeps the flowers alive.
