For the first time in three years, we have an authentic summer season. Families are traveling, concerts are in full swing, and people are making plans to visit friends and family they haven’t seen in a while.

Growing up some of my fondest memories of visiting my grandparents was the garden they had. My Pop-Pop always had corn, different color beans, tomatoes, and much more. He also grew flowers and herbs that kept the air smelling nice and sweet. Because of him I started my own small vegetable and herb garden in the backyard, and this year I have attempted to grow a peony bush just like the one he had in his garden.
