My mom is a liver transplant patient and she was warned against gardening due to fungus in the soil, and it was her favorite hobby. A man in the unit with her rejected 7 years post-transplant after he contracted something from soil, so that didn't help her anxiety. She is 10 years post transplant and would love to garden again. What precautions do you take when digging in soil and do you know any good resources I could send her way to ease her mind? I would appreciate it.

I'm also in the gulf coast region and had a successful monarch colony for about 4 or 5 years until paper wasp wiped my colony out. Once they discovered the easy chrysalis food it was like more and more wasp came to the point I had to pull plants. My neighbors weren't taking care of their property and the wasp had tons of places to freely multiply. I went from having dozens and dozens of butterflies hatching every year to very few in one season.
