Re: Scenes from Smith's Acres Farm

My little man will eat anything that hits the table but he really likes it when I boil the sprouts in lightly salted, lemon added (about 1/2 lemon with a bit of honey), water for about five minutes. Drain and let cool.

Re: Planning Your First Vegetable Garden

Have you thought about building a fence (woven wire or concrete wire about four feet off the ground) attached securely to T posts running parallel with the ground. Doing container growing...let your tomato vines run over the fencing...which will allow your tomatoes to be picked standing up and utilize the shade produced to have a lettuce bed underneath. This will allow you to have tender lettuce during the hot days of summer and will make it much slower to bolt.
