From the story:

So many of us are behind with our planning this year. ... We are in this transition right now from spring to summer and I would first just like to know what have you been doing the past couple of weeks in your home gardens or the gardens you take care of at work.

Grant: “In my home garden, my entire front yard is planted with mostly native plants, so it was very easy gardening for me ... It just took me literally two hours, a little bit of pruning and then it was done.”
