I love to garden. I'm really not physically able to get down in the dirt to do it much, but I have a nice little container garden on my back porch. This year a friend of mine says I can use her house and yard and that she will help me with it. I'm so excited! I've been getting all kinds of seed catalogs and my little 4 plant garden is becoming a farm. I want to plant everything I see! Tomatoes, peppers, peas, green beans, okra, cucumbers, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, zucchini, yellow squash, pumpkin and eggplant. These are the things I am thinking of and would like to plant. I would really like to go organic, so that what I plant depends on what organic seeds I can get. My friend and I also like to can, so we're looking at things that are easy to put up. I just love the way fresh vegetables look. They're so pretty and colorful and can really make a dish. I really enjoyed doing it this past summer with just my little containers, so I'm really looking forward to having a real garden.
