It is that time of season and anyone with even one green thumb is thinking “gardening”. Great hobby, productive, safe outdoor activity, healthy etc. My wife April has extended our garden this year and it will be bigger than ever. She is growing tomatoes , cucumber , eggplant , peas, grapes , blueberries , strawberries , lettuce, spinach, cauliflower, carrots , radishes, beets, potatoes , zucchini, squash and trying her hand at corn .

So as you can see we are going to have quite the bounty this summer. It is really cool to not have to shop for produce and knowing you grew it yourself just gives you extra satisfaction.

Now in addition to fruits and vegetables, April will also be growing several flower varieties in the garden as well. Not just for visuals, but to lure our friendly neighborhood bee’s to help pollinate. Several flowers including sunflower marigolds, daisies, pansies, petunias, etc.
