I love to garden. I think it is genetic, because my mother and my siblings all like to garden, too, and my aunts and uncles have fabulous gardens. I am a messy gardener, meaning I mostly don’t have neat, tidy edged beds. A lot of my gardens are wild looking. I used to have a small prairie. Now I have an orchard/prairie, 5 acres total. Keeps me very busy! I am mainly an organic gardener, and grow both vegies and flowers. I have recently decided to be creative with my prunings, and have been making grapevine wreaths and drying flowers. Sadly, I sold my previous home in 2003 and the new owners basically clearcut the property. Killed 54 trees and large shrubs, not to mention hundreds of raspberry bushes, asparagus, rhubarb, etc. They even cut down 2 gorgeous flowering crab trees, and most of my fruit trees. Ack!

Now that I live in WI again I have been making a lot of jam, whereas we use to mostly just can tomatoes.

I live in: United States

My zone is: 5 WI
