Home is where the heart is.

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.
