Why gardening?

I love being in our garden. Folks not from the U.P. are often surprised at the gardening we can do here. As you can see, these delphiniums are quite happy–that’s them not yet at their complete height! Our home here has a lot of room for gardening and I’ve been slowly getting rid of sod since we moved in here eight years ago. Why? Because I keep running out of space for my plants!

Gardening is pretty much the opposite of my job. Plants never complain, they work hard to be the best they can be, and if they are weeds I can yank them up by their roots!

This fall I chewed up a big section of sod. I got as far as planting some bulbs in November before we had our first snow. There’ll be more work to do in the spring…but more room for plants!
