I live in a city. And I really like it! Although I do miss having my own yard, our building has set up an area for us to garden. This is my third year participating. It’s on top of the roof of the parking garage.

Gardening is Good for your Soul…

I think my favorite thing to do is gardening. Why? Because when I am doing it, I am not worrying about a thing. I find it highly therapeutic and relaxing, even though I've digging and carrying pails of water around the yard. I've just moved to a new house, and I've...
