To me, there's nothing more satisfying than digging in the dirt with a young person.

A little blizzard is rolling through Meredith headquarters (and much of the rest of the Midwest) as I write this; we've been blanketed with a good snowfall (it looked like about 18 inches as I shoveled this morning), there are strong 40-mph winds, and we have single-digit temperatures.

When I was young, one of my mother's close friends had a garden tucked with all sorts of interesting things, such as dill, horseradish, and strawflowers.

Chocolate-scented and chocolate-colored flowers are wonderful additions to the backyard, home garden, and landscape.
Photography for garden stories often needs to take place a year in advance of publication. That's different than with many other categories, where 6 months (often much less) is a more typical lead time. With gardens, however, if I decide, ""Hey, I want to produce a story on fall foliage this October,"" and it's, say, [...]
