Why I'm Getting Dirty:  My parents always had a garden; although while at home I didn't like gardening. Once I got married I decided to do my own container gardening and love it. I find it very therapeutic for my migraines. It also keeps me busy since I don't work. Plus I like to have fresh fruits, vegetable, herbs and flowers in my home. This year I have actually planted a real garden, all be it small. I had better luck this year.
