Personally, I like growing my own veggies and every year I try different crops.  This year is tomatoes (jersey girl, beefsteak and cherry), peppers (red, yellow and jalapenos), eggplant (Japanese and black beauty), zucchini, and lots of herbs (basil, cilantro, parsley, sage, and mint).

Although, I love to grow veggies, I need all the help I can find to get my garden going and keep it producing me some produce!!

And....since I can't grow everything, I like to stop by local farms to pick out some of my other favorites!!
