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.

    tomatoes! (strawberries don't grow well in my region)
    and I can't eat most flowers
    I love growing my own veggies and shortening my "food miles"

    I work at a greenhouse so I have already started playing in the dirt but I still can not wait to be outside working in my own garden. My favorite thing to eat straight out of the garden has got to be sweet corn. It is amazing just picked with out even being cooked. The yellow and white varaities are the best. This year I am adding a strawbed garden to my normal garden so i can add more veggies! Thanks and good luck to everyone!

    Somehow the hardest tomatoes to find: Red Pear Tomatoes-too many places will try to sell me Romas. When I find them I snatch them up for my pots since the possums love my red tomatoes. So I grow Yellow Pears and anything but red-usually Heirlooms.

    This is my first year to have a garden. This would be a great jump start. I can't wait.

    I love having fresh herbs handy for cooking, particularly basil and cilantro. They make all the difference when it comes to whipping up tasty dishes. This year I want to grow lots of fresh tomatoes (so much better than store bought) and all the ingredients for homemade salsa and spaghetti sauce.

  6. Darlene says:

    Yum anything from my garden is my favorite! But if it can only be one thing it has to be the flowers, because they bring the hummingbirds, and what would summer be without them??????

  7. Barb (no joke) Weed says:

    Fresh basil from my herb pot and of course fresh tomatoes to go with the basil. Then drizzle a little olive oil and eat, eat, eat!

  8. Dottie H. says:

    I love eating and freezing fresh tomatoes along w/fresh herbs. Mixing fresh tomatoes w/fresh basil — so simple yet so delicious! There's nothing like opening a frozen bag of tomatoes from the garden and cooking w/them in the winter!
