Let's Get Dirty | All Blogs

Even when I’m out of town, I can’t stay away from the dirt

By Penny Stine

We went to Denver last weekend to visit our sons. While we were there, I helped our youngest son with his front yard garden. Be still, my beating heart, and yes, I do  think it's pretty cool that my 23-year old son likes to grow flowers and veggies in his front yard. 
We pulled tons of weeds and grass, which he should have done last summer, but didn’t. He likes to plant veggies so they grow in between the flowering perennials in front, and then he has a strip on the side that runs the length of the house that’s covered in giant sunflowers. It actually looks pretty cool, although his tree needs another coat of paint.
