The Gardens of Torch Lake

Gardeners in Northern Michigan are insane…

Think about it. We wait all those long winter months, endlessly thumbing through garden catalogs, carefully starting seeds in tiny pots in the kitchen, systematically crossing off the days on the calendar. Then at the first sign of spring we frantically plunge into the garden, cleaning, raking, hoeing, weeding, amending, planning, mulching & hoping the warmth lasts.

No doubt about it…crazy anyway you look at it!

Unless you look at it this way…

About Diane

a long time lover of all things aquatic...swimming, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling...if it involves water...I'm in. Add traveling, snowshoeing in the winter, gardening in the spring, & lots of fresh air & sunshine. Blend with cooking, crafting, great friends & my Border Collie Zack. Toss in some sweet beekeeping. Mix in a couple of great books, my camera, clean notebook paper, & a cool pen & you pretty much have a picture of me. My friends tell me I should also add..."once a teacher...always a teacher".
