I stopped to get my morning coffee at a little place not far from home. Sharing the same parking lot was one of the big home improvement stores. You know the one, a cavernous place with lots of pallet racks and forklifts. So, with my coffee in hand, I took a walk.
Just inside the entrance to the garden department was a display of vegetables. As I'm sure you know, vegetable gardening is the fastest growing segment of gardening. It seems everyone nowadays, from Michelle Obama to the guy next door, has at least a few vegetables tucked somewhere in the garden.
Ah, the vegetable display. There's something soothing about peeking through the little vegetable starts early in the morning. Let's see what I should be planting this weekend. My choices today were seven different varieties of peppers, a large medley of about 20 varied tomatoes, two eggplant selections, a cucumber, both pole and bush beans, a couple of squash options, a melon, corn and a whole lot of basil.
