The cover photo is grape hyacinths which grow in Susans yard.
Last year I had a small garden. I grew cherry tomatoes, mini sweet peppers, cucumbers, basil, cilantro and thyme. I was very successful with my cucumbers. I got a good yield from just one plant.
Two weeks later, my seeds have sprouted and we already have enough salad greens to enjoy for dinner tonight. I will move my seedlings outside once the nighttime temps are warm enough, probably in 3 weeks.
Thank you Susan! I am sharing a community garden plot with my neighbor this season and we will be working out there come May. There'll definitely be tomatoes, some herbs, and perhaps sweet peppers...I haven't completely decided what to plant.
