This is the two-acre garden of Mike and Brenda Snider in central Ohio.

As we head toward our second spring of the pandemic, we are reviewing pictures of the past year and would like to share some with other gardeners. The bone structure of the garden was planted 40 years ago; however, we have become rather intense gardeners in the past 10 years. We have pictures of new garden areas as well as established gardens.

Now we are busy planning our garden for our second spring of the pandemic and look forward to more rewarding enhancements in the garden.
