Vegetable Gardening:
Because You Get Homegrown Tomatoes

I started vegetable gardening with one tomato plant in a 3' x 3' raised bed during my  first year of marriage. That was all it took to get me hooked.

I don't know about you but I love fresh homegrown tomatoes, sliced while they are still warm from the sun, and eaten on a tomato sandwich.  Nothing can compare to the taste!

I've learned much of what I know about gardening by trial and error. I've also learned some great tips from some of my favorite gardeners,  websites, and books. 

As my knowledge has grown, so has my garden. I currently have six 10' x 4' foot raised garden beds with plans to build a total of 10 beds.  I have two patio containers for lettuce as well as an asparagus bed and a strawberry bed.  In the front flower bed, I am growing artichokes.

I want to share the joy of eating fresh homegrown vegetables with as many people as possible. Anyone can begin growing their own vegetables with a little planning and preparation.
