I love fresh produce but my available planting areas are full of flowers. The only vegetable/fruit I grow are tomatoes and I grow those in my sons garden. I had a bacon and tomato sandwich for supper. Today I went to two local farm stands and this is what I saw. I bought sweet corn Lovey dubby and cucmbers to slice into some seasoned rice vinegar : Thumb of 2013-07-22/Paul2032/8ec844

Yum! Especially the peaches and apricots as there's no way they'd grow in my zone-unless someone created
a very amazing microclimate.

Wow, very good looking produce. The garlic was impressive! I'll bet you'll be back.

No way to squeeze a veggie or two in with the flowers? Beets and swiss chard have beautiful foliage and don't take a lot of space. Green Grin!
