Something anyone can enjoy where no computer or phone required is gardening. Chris has enjoyed the magic of his partner's Suzy Tyler green thumb in their garden. She suggests newbies read the Western Garden Book which is in its 8th edition. The book is like a "garden bible" with info on 8,000 plants and tips on gardening in your climate.
