Hi, my name is Freya and I have been gardening for about 6 years. I have only had small gardens with tomatoes and squash because those were my favorites to eat. This year for Mother's day, my husband built me a huge garden so I could plant more. I have enjoyed it so much that I go out to my garden about 3 times a day just to look around and admire what all I have grown. I live in a neighborhood so huge to me may be tiny for others. Right now, I am growing corn, green beans, cucumbers, squash, cantelope, watermelon, strawberries, grapes and tomatoes. Everything but my strawberries are doing well. I live in the central time zone, more specifically, central Texas. I have now found a new passion for canning and have learned to make some very yummy canned pickles and okra! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
