True confession time: DW and I are compulsive gardeners. We do it for vastly superior food, aesthetic beauty, and to create wildlife habitat. I grew up with it; it's as natural to me as the change of the seasons.

We're in Zone 3b. That means there are still snowbanks, and the frost line is approximately six feet deep. But we're already making plans, and working in various corners of the yard in preparation. I guess prairie gardeners are a tenacious lot.

So, anybody else planting a garden? Perhaps for the first time? Container gardening? Putting in a little extra as a hedge against the difficulties of 2020?

Just getting started. our mainstay is an avocado tree, with supplemental veggies, which taste delicious freshly picked. Will expand our efforts.

Mrs. Magnet is a decent gardener.

Me on the other hand, I once killed a plastic fern.
