Bicyclists forget the snow and start planning your spring and summer rides with Bikeverywhere.com. Whether you ride locally or far afield, BE offers the tools and community you need.
If you've got a patch, or know someone who does, encourage them to spend an hour there (soon!) to get these vegetables harvested and donated to the food pantry.
So sure, autumn (as my British friends insist I call it) has its charms, but overall, I'm not fond of it.
A gardening neighbor gave me my first taste of Melrose peppers! Amazing! (Need I remind you I'm not a native Illinoisan?)
Luckily, I don't think Mother Nature is aware of what the calendar says--I'd really like a lot more growing time.
Are you looking for a new use for cucumber? Give a Gordon's cup a try!
I've especially been anticipating the lemon boy tomatoes . . . they must be delicious, even green. The deer sure think so.
I think the orange mint really made the difference--it added some complexity to the citrus notes. This is the most refreshing cocktail!
I'm proud of the cucumbers because I started them at home in June and transplanted them to the patch, and they are definitely my most successful plant.
Deer like okra plants and, it seems, their tomato of choice is cherry.
