get link Sharing secrets, successes, and sometimes failures of a young gardener in suburbia.  I live in zone 5 with too long of a snowy winter and too many late spring frosts.  I have two 3×5 raised beds, as well as a small patch of perennial herbs and berries!  Follow me as I fill my house with seedlings in February, transplant in early May (and battle the unpredictable weather), try my hand at succession planting throughout the season, harvest my goodies, and preserve as much as I can for the winter!
