Ruth Hayden, 66, of Elizabethtown, leads a multifaceted life. She’s an avid gardener, musician and quilter.
But this time of year, gardening takes most of her attention.
While her family always had a garden when she was a child, her interest developed later. It was when she had her own place and ground to dig that the passion for gardening took off, Hayden said.
Three years ago, Hayden and her husband, Joe, took a master gardener course.
“It doesn’t make us experts by any means,” she said.
