Time to think Garden

by kalamaquilts @ webshots

Ok. I didn’t have a garden last year-not really. I had some tomatoes and little things, but not a real garden. With gas prices the way they are right now, I’m thinking GARDEN! I almost want to plant one in the country, but it wouldn’t be feasible-60 miles away and if it is hot and dry, there is no one there to water it.

So, what should I plant? I’m the only one in the house who likes tomatoes, and everyone else likes cucumbers (they don’t like me). There are cucumber bushes, but I’ve never had much luck with them. Bell and hot peppers are usually easily grown in my little space, so they are in. I have grown squash and okra and other things in the past, but it’s a lot of work. I’m hoping that there are some family members here that are willing to pitch in since I cannot do much of it anymore.

So, what are you planning to grow this spring and summer? And, do you start from seeds or do you buy plants?

Happy Gardening!
