My dd and I are trying to grow a garden this year. It's been a while since I've had one.. well, since before dh died.

We are eating more fresh vegetables because now that my dc are older, they actually LIKE them! :mrgreen:
We bought seeds for green beans, zuchinni, yellow squash, green onions, and a few other things that I can't remember right now.
I also bought a tomato plant that is in a hanger. I will hang this from my porch out of the cats reach (hopefully, lol!)
I am the only one that eats tomatoes so one plant should be enough. I will freeze what I don't eat fresh.

I want some silver queen corn but haven't found seeds for that yet.
I can't wait!! Dd is excited also. It's so good to see her getting into growing her own food. She also bought a few herbs to grow for cooking. She really likes to cook now. I know one of the herbs she bought is italian parsely. I can't remember what else she found.

Awesome! Enjoy it. I have a notoriously brown thumb so we'll see how ours goes this year. :0)

On the silver queen, maybe a supplier problem. Here's my fav place for veg and herb seeds http://www.cooksgarden.com/?cid=PPC they carry something this year called Silver Princess, it matures quicker than Queen.
