We love working in our yard and garden almost as much as working in the studios. We call it "garden therapy." We're lucky here in Virginia to have a long growing season, and we try to grow a little something most of the year. We're big experimenters in the garden, planting local and heirloom seeds, saving seeds, trying out new vegetables and growing tricks. Last year we grew a butternut squash plant from our compost bin that produced enough to keep us in squash all winter, and it's looking close this year!
