Strawberries! I love planting new baby plants, weeding them, picking and eating them! Many years ago, I had a 2 acre strawberry patch that kept me busy!

Now, too many squirrels, and can't even have a little patch!

Your squirrel situation in unfortunate, but maybe you can guard your strawberries by putting a fence around them. Also, you can use our interactive map on our Triscuit site to find a community-based home farm near you. You can even add your own home farm to the interactive map to connect with other local farmers and track your own farm’s progress! Do you grow anything other than strawberries?

garlic is my favorite veggie, but for "pull and put it in your mouth" it would be a sweet little carrot. potatoes are fun to dig because you don't know exactly what you will find...3 big ones, a bunch of little ones, ones that look like someone you know...
okra blooms are the prettiest, we plant them in the first row for all to see.
nothing beats a good rhubarb pie.

along with potatoes goes sweet potatoes. I didn't plant them this year for the first time in about 10, but will next year. The same thing, you dig up one huge one, dig up one that is so big you cut it in 1/2 and then 3 tiny guys.I love that end of Oct, first of November when we go and dig them up. It is usually the same time we pull everything else out. We will take the remaining tomoates in and wrap them in newspaper, pull anything else up and say good night to the garden for about 5 months.

Hummmmm, cantalopes and Sugar Baby watermelons. Next would be tomatos, Broccoli, Garlic, Corn, Okra, cabbage, romaine lettuce--not necessarily in that order.

No contest. Tomatoes and the more, the better. I make salsa, tomato sauces, canned tomatoes....also dehydrate them. Use them all year round in various recipes.

Next would be squashes, peppers and beans.

Lettuce, with tomatoes a close second. I also love growing collards. I make fresh greens from them and freeze a few batches for winter. It's such a treat!

Tomatoes are my favorite thing to grow. Store bought tomatoes do not smell or taste like fresh one. I love fresh tomatoes!
