Do you have a garden?

  " & # " 

Thia Brown Hair stylist Yes. I’ve never had one before, and now I have a nice sunny patch in my yard that I’ve filled with food-bearing plants. I have tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers, and I think everyone should have lettuce. It’s awesome for lazy people, because you can pick it as it grows and have a fresh salad every night. I do it for my sanity, and my family reaps the benefits.

Second-grader I have a garden on my ranch. We grow vegetables, fruit and grass. I love the tomatoes and bell peppers. I help plant them and I weed them. It’s really fun and it’s good to eat, too.

Karen Olivero Owner, Sunday Morning Bakery Yes. I grow mostly herbs, but I have tomatoes that I roast for my frittatas and quiches that I sell at Juice and Java. Meadowlark Dairy carries my garlic and pesto butter that I make from my herbs. I also have an apple tree, and I dry my own apples for my homemade granola.
