No matter what time of year, I'm pondering and planning about growing – vegetable growing and growing my inner self.

The hail, quick temperature changes, snow on Mother's Day and early autumn freezes make things interesting.
In collaboration with Denver Urban Gardens, Anythink is providing free seeds and transplants to individuals, families, schools and community organizations based on annual adjusted gross income levels in order to ensure that everyone has access to healthy food. If you're interested in receiving these seeds and transplants, visit your local Anythink and ask for the Free Seeds & Transplants application. This year, each household can receive up to seven seed packets and four sets of transplants.
