Nice garden. Wish I had one like that. If I had decent soil I'd be growing vegetables. Fresh and I'd know they were free of chemicals and not GM, genetically modified.

forgot.....I am growing something! I have about 100 lemons on my tree. (would rather have something more practical).

No taters for me either but I have picked a couple pounds of beans and snow peas already, and I have an artichoke almost ready to pick!

Would not have thought of Maryland as growing ground for artichokes but I guess is no reason why not. My second cousin proved you could grow non-grafted Merlot grapes and produce award winning wine at his place in Painter, VA between the Chesepeake and Atlantic.

When living in the Bay Area I was not far from the artichoke capital and used to buy them for next to nothing and roadside stands.

I did get some at the store a couple weeks ago that were the biggest I had ever seen. They were large softball size. Yummy.

One thing I do miss with City living is having my own garden. The shared ones just never work out so well. I do love being by the park though and it is spectacular this year.

Being from Idaho I can appreciate your potato's
Actually- no one grows them commercially around me- thats in southern ID.
Nothing better than discovering whats under the ground at harvest time.
I passed on a garden this year-except for my raspberries and apples

E, do you spray your apple trees with anything? Year after year my apples get spots on the skin. The fruit is still edible and tastes great but just not appealing to look at.
