Hello GPOD individuals! I’m an natural vegetable farmer alongside my husband and 4 youngsters in southeastern Minnesota, close to Rochester. My ardour is my flower beds close to our residence, which we constructed 4 years in the past from a complete clean slate when it got here to landscaping. I really like to start out perennials from seed to economize, and I additionally begin a lot of annuals annually for steady colour. Our winters are lengthy, however the summers make up for it. A few of my new favourite annuals embrace the Zinnia Profusion Series, which you will notice bordering a lot of my beds, in addition to Victoria blue salvia.
