This week’s freebie is a gardener’s bonanza that comes just in time for spring, sunshine and a sizable outdoor to-do list! I don’t know about you, but I’m jonesing to play in the dirt. I can’t wait to build a couple of raised beds for salad greens, squash, tomatoes and cucumbers. I’m also going to hang some baskets of nasturtiums and strawberries from the front porch. Oh, and I can’t forget my herb and cut flower garden.

    It has to be a nice, fresh tomato….. We used to get baskets from a cousin, and we used to eat them like we would eat apples….. If you want a fruit, it would be a peach…. When I lived in CT, I would find out opening day for my favorite orchard, so I would be first in line for peaches…. There is nothing like walking into the showroom and sniff and just smell delicious peaches…

    I love the first strawberries of the season. That will come much earlier this year for me because I have just moved from Mass. to S.C. Spring has already sprung here!!!!

    Oh my, the best is a good ripe tomato.

    We have three raised vegetable beds and I love the taste of cucumbers, butter lettuce, carrots, and roma tomatoes from my garden. I have a fresh herb tub, so having chives, thyme, tarragon, and parsley readily at hand is awesome. There's nothing comparable to the taste of fresh basil from the garden, I add it to salads, and everything possible!

  6. Tomatoes and cucumbers straight from the garden to the dinner table are the best! Store-bought tomatoes and cucumbers cannot compare! I can't wait to eat my own home-grown veggies!

    I would have to say ALL OF THE ABOVE!!! I love fresh fruits and vegetables of just about all kinds. I love to take tomatoes and small cucumbers straight from the vine, wipe them free from dirt and pop them in my mouth. I also like to sneak a few bites of green beans as I am snapping them or a handful of peas as I am shelling. I also like to chew on the pea pods. And if I am picking fruit, I probably eat just as many as I pick. Nothing is better than fresh fruit and veggies straight from the source except maybe the smell of fresh cut flowers in ones home. I love flowers and the many colors, scents and animals they bring to a garden. I can't wait to move into my new home so I can plant flowers, put in my garden and really make the place 'mine'

    We loved the tomatoes we planted this year… YUM! I still have a few jars left. :) And the summer squash too… hoping to have a bigger crop this year. :)

  9. Lisa says:

    We absolutely love cucumbers! Pick em' and crunch right in! Delicious!

    I love the herbs and flowers…..My family on the other hand love the garden….my nephew will go sit beside a tomato plant and eat tomatoes until he gets a tummie ache.
