We all love to go out to a garden and look at the flowers and try to figure out what it was that went into their making. What is the story of your garden and how did it get to be the way it is? It is likely that you will only have one or two garden friends so the chance to share your garden stories will not be very common.
You may want to start a gardening journal with your own garden.

Once you decide that you are going to have a garden, you will want to know how to care for it and how much it costs to keep it clean.
