When i lived in California i had a vegetable garden. i grew tomatoes, three kinds of lettuce,peppers, cucumbers and corn. it was hard work and very gratifying. i loved going to the backyard to pick dinner.
i grew flowers, too..cana and calla lilies, gladiolas, impatients, mini carnations. i grew lavender, sage, thyme and mint.
the mint threatened to take over the whole plot.
hard to write about gardens without getting homesick for california.
