Jeff Calton gardens through a tough spring season and produces wonderful results.

"So far it has been a challenging spring...rain rain rain and two weeks of late cold with one of those weeks being VERY cold.  They say it will warm up this week to stay.  Despite that things have been growing and some containers are starting to fill out. I am way past ready for that to happen."
