We do not just want to provide you with updates on our garden but to share our success and failures in hopes that it will encourage you to start a garden or provide helpful information as YOU garden. We will start providing recipes for preparing the food that is grown, resources that have helped us to get started and new ideas that that we are considering.  So, if you have questions ask them, if you have ideas share them….we’re in this together.  We want this be as interactive as possible.

Until next time…..


  1. It's so impressive. It's so hard to believe you have only been doing this for six months. Thanks for the butternut squash and the watermelons. I got them planted last night. I love your garden cart and I would love one!

  2. We are jealous of your pepper and your tomatoes!! : ) Great job on the Gragston garden!

  3. Hey, everyone tells me it's too late to plant lettuce here in Atlanta, but if you can grow it in California, I should be able to here. Any suggestions!

  4. @kimberly-I will email you a link to a Bountiful Gardens news letter which has information regarding summer lettuce. As a matter of fact, we bought the summer lettuce seed pack today.
