Have you heard about the “Home Farming Movement” yet? I actually work with Triscuit and we have included plantable seed cards in 4 million boxes of Triscuit to help encourage people to grow their own herbs and vegetables at home. On our site, www.triscuit.com/homefarming, you will find interactive tools that give you step-by-step tips on how to start your own home farm. Do you have a favorite crop?

Asparagus! Easy to grow once it is established, tastes great and is expensive to buy at the grocery.

Many years ago, I was at a relative's farm for lunch one day, and they pulled fresh beets out of the ground, cooked them and served them with the meal. I don't even like beets, but they were excellent. So, beets? Oh, I like corn too. And green onions......and........how do you pick one?

We buy one Roma tomato plant with a lot of flowers on it already and we get a lot of tomatoes early.
I would never plant corn, by the time it is ready, it's so cheap to buy anyway and zucchinis, folks can't give away fast enough. I will plant some cilantro a bit at a time throughout the season so we have it fresh.
We just moved to a place where it would be next to impossible to have a real garden without a ten foot high fence.
Deer and lots of them. I'm not all that fond of doing all the work like weeding anyway.
