We have been gardening for many years. I can and freeze just about everything
And if you live in an apartment or don't have a yard, consider getting an indoor planting system!
Thank you! I love my garden so much.
I love the outdoors but limited with my knee
i like to pick from my own garden
People are hoping to convince our provincial government (Ontario, Canada) that community veg gardens are a necessity this year. At the moment, they're closed and being called 'non-essential'. People with low incomes and those working in food banks completely disagree. Inexpensive food, exercise, a chance for being outdoors and the mental energy that brings - what's not to like??!! Sure hope our government listens - and changes their policy.
Going through seed catalogues as the snow falls. Can't wait for spring.
I enjoy gardening and harvesting; I harvested almost 40 lbs of potatoes from my garden today, I started with 25 seed potatoes.
Any articles on container gardening? I live in a Condo with a lot of sun and space on my porch. Thank you.
Excellent article! Thanks for sharing this one!
I love picking a fresh tomato right off the vine to put in a salad.
