Hi from Durham North Carolina

Post  kiwirose on 5/11/2010, 9:27 am

This is our first year sfg. We have had tomatoes in our flower gardens as we move around for a number of year. My 7 year old son would go out with a bowl every night after dinner, pick a full bowl of cherry tomatoes and eat them for desert. He loves them. He is also a huge vege fan and we have the space and the energy so we thought - why not? We are also part of a CSA this year which is forcing us to try veges that we wouldn't normaly buy - which then gives us ideas of seeds to try later in the year (fall planting). Right now we have spinach, lettuce, raddishs, broccoli, arugula, carrots, squash, cucumbers, green and wax bush beans, tomatoes, herbs, sweet pepper, green chilli and snap peas happily growning (or geminating). We will have quite the bounty soon (currently picking spinach, broccoli, lettuce, arugula and raddishes). My son thinks this whole project if fabulous and tastes everything we grow even though his taste buds have had a couple of shocks (raddish, arugula didn't go down so well lol)

Mostly the veges are my endevours, but my son is a huge help building the boxes and harvesting our bounties, my husband helped this weekend lug the big old bags of compost when I put in yet another box - and we all enjoy eating the results Smile

As a family, we like to travel, fish, camp, garden, and eat... most of that all compliments each other nicely Smile
