My name is Tracy, and I'm a gardener from the frozen reaches of the Upper Midwest - the suburbs of Minneapolis, to be exact. My zone 4a garden includes vegetables, herbs, flowers and lots of native plants that were there when we got there. I'm also lucky enough to live on a fairly good-sized pond, so bird-watching is always good.
However, with the good comes the bad. I'm in a constant battle with wildlife. We have a roaming herd of deer that destroys everything in it's path. We have "cute" little bunnies that love to mow down the greens in the garden. And of course there's the ever-present battle with Minnesota's weather.
