This is my second year growing my own garden. I have had success and failure both years. I am not nearly as good at this as my grandparents. I don’t know very many tricks of the trade. But I am learning new things each year.

Place tomatoes on your counter stem side down. This slows the rotting process.

What great garden or vegetable tips do you have?
