Favorite Vegetables to Grow

The gardening season is just about here. I’m getting ready to plant our vegetable garden which has done very well in years past, but it has also been known to be very productive in weeds (if only we could eat them)! This year I’m going to try to stay ahead of the game.

Anyway, as I map out the garden this season, I started thinking about what our most favorite vegetable is to grow. While I love the fresh taste of tomatoes, they are not my favorite plants in the garden. The plants usually need some type of staking or else the tomatoes grow on the ground and get rotten before you pick them, so they’re good and will be a part of the garden, but they’re not my favorite.

Cucumbers are up there – we love to eat them and usually, if the summer weather doesn’t get too hot or dry, we can get a great harvest of fresh, tasty cucumbers.

But I think at our house the favorite vegetable to grow has to be zucchini, and it’s not because we love to eat zucchini bread. Over the past few years, we have grown some of the biggest, baddest zucchinis we’ve ever seen! Some are the size of small baseball bats! I’m not joking! We’ve gone away for a few days and come back to GIANT green zucchinis in our garden. I must admit these giants usually end up in the compost, but they are great for some laughs (and sometimes we even use them as bats with soft balls!).

    regarding using an anilog watch as a compass, you are the only site that says use clockwise reading in the am and counterclockwise reading in the pm. It makes a huge difference. please explain. thanks.

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
