  1. I wo&udnl#8217;t know what to do without a garden, & never want to find out. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to truly all the hours & patience of both my Grandmothers when they shared not just their years of gardening experience, but their love of preserving the bounties of their harvest & sharing that food with friends, neighbors & family. It’s a way of life I pass on to others with what I’ve learned over the years. Thanks for the chance to win this lovely little planter
