Happy Gardening! Isn't it amazing how much better a little bit of yard work can make a place look! Any thought to interplanting a few veggies into the 'flower' garden to increase your veggie yield in you limited space? I've often done that with good results. I have blueberry bushes at the back of flower beds in my yard and use hot peppers as a border, as I think they are pretty on their own. On the edge one year, I did pumpkin and wound it around as a ground cover - was a bit too much work though, so I stay away from running squashes now. Eggplant has a pretty purple flower and the fruits are attractive also. I don't know why we were brought up to separate flowers and veggies, but I've had a lot of fun and luck combining the two.

Coming into the driveway, we have a strip about 4' wide and 20' long with a few bushes, hedges, and a small fig tree. The two azalea plants there are coming into their full red blooms the past few days. In spite of our tight budget, I cleaned up that area and laid down 10 bags of black much there, it sure makes a difference in the appearance. Out back, I cleared a small area for planting some zucchini, we will see how that goes, and I may expand the area next year. Also got 3 topsy-turvy tomato planters today. They are $9.99 each at Bed, Bath & Beyond (the cheapest in town), plus they gave me a $5 discount on the three, so it was only $25. Then I got 3 Early Girl tomato plants at Walmart for 3.33 each, that variety grows fast and is best for containers, we had good luck with them before down south. Also trying to grow some cilantro in a few large flower pots, and may try a few radishes in another area cleared in the rear "yard" section to be shared with a few flower seeds. The adjacent neighbor's son, who are Hispanic, had a nice garden last year. They have no garage or driveway (they are in a duplex), but he has a much bigger area, about 6' x 40' not including the rest of his yard. He's been going at it too, the last few days, digging away. Always nice to both see others and to participate oneself in a bit of that spring fever. In fact, so many people seemed to have been doing the same thing around here, that the yard waste garbage truck finally made it just now - at 6:45PM !

Default Your Favorite Restaurant Salad Dressing

I don't see many posts about salad dressings at restaurants, so I was wondering where do you get your favorite Salad dressing. My favorite is the garlic balsamic Parmesan dressing at Gentile's Philly Grill on Jackson St. How about you?

You should be hanging out at Roadfood.com - The most memorable local eateries along the highways and back roads of America Not at all an unusual topic of discussion on there.
