I have always loved to garden, but my whole adult life I have had goats, which make short work of a garden when they get out of their fences. The goats are gone so all my plants have to contend with is my Shetland Sheepdogs that I raise and show. :-)

I live on a 60+ acre farm with my husband and young teenage children. The farm has been in my husbands family for over 120 years. Since the goats have been gone and I have taken over "lawn mower duty" from my husband, I have discovered a lot of plants coming up on their own.

My husbands grandmother had a cement fish pond w/rock garden put in 40 years ago. It is approx 4' in diameter and probably about 18"-2' deep. I have claimed it back from the dogs and we have been working to make it attractive. We have done a lot of work, but still have bigger plans for the future.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z5 MI
