Why I'm Getting Dirty:  Gardening helps me connect with the cycle of life in a very tangible way and fulfills me in a way that no other activity can.

    What a great community! My thanks to you all for the great comments on my garden! Sorry for not responding sooner -- I've been busy planting and tending my garden in the incredibly challenging AZ heat. So far, I have had success with some plants; little success with others. The one thing I keep in mind is that gardening is like having a real life laboratory that offers tremendous learning experiences.

    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

    Gardening does seem to connect with how all things come together to sustain life. Doesn't it?

    Have a great Arizona day.

    I too have containers on the front patio and trellis and raised garden beds in the backyard.

    Have a great day in the garden.
