Hey green thumbs! We were fortunate to host Carol and Pat from the Lake County Master Gardeners earlier this week. They suggested tools and techniques that can make gardening easier and safer as you age. Gardening – like so many other physical tasks – gets trickier as we grow older. However, with the right plan, one can still enjoy gardening at any age.
