Why I'm Getting Dirty:  As a Master Gardner I enjoy it....I teach beginner gardners how to start a new and exciting garden from the ground up. Working in my gardens is the best therapy there is. Plants dont talk back but they sure do produce. As a tenant of the earth we have to be good stewards and share our knowledge.

    I like your reasons for getting dirty, and what a cute little box of salad! Where do you teach these beginner gardeners?
