My garden has been a great way to connect with others. Sharing my planning and photos of my progress on social media, or giving a friend a garden tour as we video chat on our devices both inspires me to do and share more, and I hope inspires others to do the same. This year, I happen to have a garden bed, but other years, I did similar growing but in the planters on my deck.
