Two weeks ago my neighbor Kevin was kind enough to guide me through the process of converting a fairly sizable portion of my back yard into a garden. He even gave me all the plants out of his own yard. Such a generous fellow.

It has been such a joy to turn the patch of grass and weeds and dirt into a nicely crafted bed of shade-loving plants with a little pebble pathway running through it. We even installed a crazy cool misting system that waters the plants on a timer each morning.

As I was adding mulch to the beds today, it occurred to me that gardening is a lot like designing user interfaces for the web, only dirtier and more physically demanding.
