  • This is going to be my second year of growing vegetables. We grew peppers, hot peppers, tomatoes, and herbs. It was nice to be able to pluck off a few basil leaves fresh from my herb garden instead of paying $3.00 for the same amount of leaves at the store.

  • Yes, to both. We have a couple of fruit trees & a strawberry bed, plus a large annual garden bed & two smaller perennial garden beds of asparagus & herbs. I want to add a cold-frame this year so that we can extend our harvest season.
