Have come to know that northern gardeners share a special insanity - perhaps we are all gamblers in disguise. In our short growing season, we just know how blessed we are to make it through mid-august without a killing frost, go to rather extreme lengths to build up our acidic, sandy soils, and this sometimes finds us meeting in the same places looking for roadside plants to dig, prized compost items some other silly person has thrown out - etc. I am in a somewhat stressful medical field, and my garden provides me a peaceful field, a place to re-cuperate and rehab myself , praying and relaxing.
