Heart of the Home: Planning a Garden

Readers share stories of planning a garden, from keeping a garden journal to planting vegetables, herbs, and flowers.

| Spring 2017

We asked readers to send in stories about how they plan their garden each spring, asking what kinds of vegetables, herbs, and flowers they plant, when they start planting, and if they incorporate any statues or other garden items into the mix. We received several stories. Here are a couple of our favorites.
