My husband and I grew up in South Jersey and have lived here most of our lives. I have been vegetable gardening for almost 30 years. I don’t remember exactly when, but I do remember how I started. I made a batch of tomato sauce from some Jersey tomatoes a co-worker gave me.  It was so good, I decided to grow my own.

At the time, we were living in a Philly rowhouse and our small backyard doubled as a driveway. There were two strips on both sides for planting. I dug up the rosebushes that were there and planted my first tomato garden.

I’ll be sharing how I garden and what I do with the stuff I grow. I hope other gardeners join in and share their experiences as well. My garden was very tomato centric but I would like to explore more about succession planting and getting more out of my small space. Currently, my vegetable garden has seven 4×12 ft. raised beds with 336 sq. ft. of growing space. I also have an 8×10 ft. greenhouse.
