cottage gardens with a little bit of everything. I like that my gardens change every year. I focus mostly on perennials and plants that reseed themselves. I will try almost any plant once, or sometimes twice, but I love carefree flowers that take care of themselves. I have a small vegetable garden in the corner of my yard, but I use every inch of it and then some. We have a relatively short growing season here, so I stick to a few tried and true viarieties, but always try one or two new things each year.
