Favorite? So hard to pick, but maybe strawberries or blueberries or kholrabi!
No answer yet
I have lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruit, star fruit, guava, mango, papaya, grapes, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, pomogranates, and (hopefully soon) bananas and kiwis, not to mention various and assorted veggies!! ... and I live in a gated community with a small backyard :-)
I was starting my first gardening attempt and as cucumbers are one of my favorite foods, I thought I would grow them and save lots of money. I was determined to go organic. And lo and behold, bugs, fungus, mold, you name it, every bad thing happened and I failed over and over again. I threw in the towel and was beginning to believe that I would not be able to grow cucumbers here when by chance, on one of my ECHO visits I heard someone saying, ".. and they taste like cucumbers ...". So I had to know, what where they talking about?? Happened to be luffas. Now I grow them all year round and LOVE them! Who knew you could grow them ... AND eat them?
Everyday is a learning opportunity!
