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.

    Having in laws from the jamacia and india it is hard to find good juicy produce for our family so we started growing it ourselves and I must say watermelon and tomatoes are beyond the best of best and the fresh herbs, as a family we love to teach our children about reaping the fruit of there labor and the reward of growing and harvesting there own food, our son and daughter loves it so much they have farmer markets in the summer with there little cart our neighbors love it and so do we, we would love to win this sound exciting

    I'd like to learn how to grow flowers. My 21 year old son, Kyle, died in a car accident 17 months ago (October 2009) and I take fresh flowers to his grave site every week or two. I've even been known to take huge potted mums. If I know I won't make it back for 2 weeks, I actually plant a small potted plant in the vase and arrange fresh cut flowers around it. I refuse to take him fake flowers. I would love to take him flowers that I have grown, he used to tease me about not being able to keep plants alive. Since I will never be able to do anything for him again, I can pour my love and heartache into the flowers. Maybe they will grow this time.

    I love having fresh herbs to go out and pick from to stick in with meals, but if I am picking a food to munch right there in the garden while I am working it would probably pears off the pear tree at the co-garden we share with some friends. Love that spring is almost here to get back out in the garden!

    I would love to plant my very own veggies and fruits, but my mom really enjoys planting flowers. I love strawberries and pumpkins (actually I love everything). This would be a fun project that my mom and I would REALLY look forward to!

    I always have a huge garden, and Tomatos are by far my most favorite, I always plant lots of them and several different kinds, I love the huge beefstake tomatoes, I like to take a salt shaker to the patch with me(that's how much I love them!) to split one open and see what looks like little pearls of dew, you know without a doubt that it's gonna be good, salt that baby and mmmm it's great right off the vine!.. I also love the peppers.. Home grown veggies are oh so good!
