Grow Your Own Veggies

Eller-050412-Plants

Be aware that certain vegetables, including tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, peas and beans need support as they grow. While you can invest in wire cages and trellises to support their climbing habits, feel free to poke around your garage and see what you can come up with. Pieces of wood, old broomsticks or even really long branches from your yard work just as well. A special shout out to my father who started growing his cucumbers in hanging baskets, allowing the shoots to just travel downward as they grow, completely eliminating the need for staking.

Is growing your own garden a time consuming process? Yes. But one bite of your first homegrown tomato will have you convinced that it was all worthwhile.
