To take up arms against voracious slugs, seed-slinging weeds, and countless other gardening perils, a person needs to be keen. To do so for almost 30 years, a person must be crazy. OK, call me crazy, but I love the payoff when everything botanical on my dinner plate came from my own garden – vegetables, fruits, legumes, and nuts – all home-grown. True, I have another life, viewable at my public speaking website at http://www.speakingwins.com, but my calling is my garden. Actually, I mean to say my garden calls to me. Constantly.
