20 Years & Vegetables

My wife and I have lived in Woodstock, near the Dean Street School, for 20 years. We love it here and intend to spend the next 20 years here as well. In the summertime we really like the farmers market on the Square. Salad greens are among the popular items we buy. Over the years I have experimented with growing perennials and raspberries. Both are rather hardy and easy to manage. It's a great feeling to go into your yard and find something edible. A friend with more experience in the yard suggested growing lettuce and kale. I am amazed at how easy it is to grow! Less than $1 in lettuce mix seeds will save us over $50 in purchases over the summer. It only took me 20 years to figure this out.
