I want to invite my gardening friends in Prince Georges County to join me on my gardening blog at http://www.earlsgarden.blogspot.com/. Please feel free to comment and offer suggestions for the garden. This will be a year round blog as I rebuild/rearrange my home garden in Greenbelt. I will be adding veggies for the first time this year.
