On Hiring a Garden-Sitter

Few things are as traumatic to me as leaving my garden in the care of another when I go away for any reason. 

We just came back from a two-week vacation, where we were checking up on friends and relatives we love who'd gone through things like heart attacks, job losses, recent bereavements, and decline due to age. It meant we had to hire what I call, for lack of a better term, a Garden-Sitter. 

It's not the first time we've had to do this. I thought I'd share what we've learned over the years.
