Our friends at Triscuit would like to know: What gives you garden envy?

Is it your neighbor's award-winning roses? The friend who grows the largest cukes you've ever seen? The gardener who never seems to be bothered by pests? Or maybe the beautifully designed garden you see on your daily walk. We want to know what makes you green with garden envy!

For me I am envious of the gardeners with longer seasons or two seasons.

Our season is short as well.. I envy gardening zones 4 and up. If due to weather our Spring starts late (past May long weekend) we are smart to have started plants indoors because June - Sept is not quite long enough.

I have to agree with Liz. I'm envious of those with long growing seasons! I'm in the mountains of Colorado - probably a similar growing season to Carol too? - and find the growing season to be too short. We gardened for a few years down in Denver and finally found our groove. We've been up at 8500 ft for the past two growing seasons now (we're just starting our third) and haven't quite figured it all out yet.

Same here Kellie, our seasons are probably similar with Denver and Calgary being much alike. I LOL at... "Between our climate, my skill level, our critters, and the amount of time/energy I can put into it, I think I just have to come to terms with the fact that there will be many things I won't be growing."

Talk to you soon!
