this beautifully photographed post on poppytalk this morning had me thinking about vegetable gardens. someday, i would love to have a wonderful back yard plot where i can grow some of my own. i have fond childhood memories of going out back and picking fresh, crisp lettuce for dinner. do you grow your own food? what are your favourite things to grow?
