Greengirls Helen Yarmoska, Nicole Hvidsten, Martha Buns, Connie Nelson, Kim Palmer and Mary Jane Smetanka are dishin' the dirt from the back-yard garden and beyond. Whether you're a greenthumb or greenhorn, they're eager to learn from your mishaps, mistakes - and most importantly, your sweet successes - all growing season long.
If I had my druthers....
1/ I’d have these fantastic State Fair horses galloping across my front yard.
2/ These enormous spiders — I think it’s an orb spider? — would not build their giant webs where I walk smack into them, and the spider would not take refuge on my shoulder.
3/ Potato vines would have these lovely little blossoms all summer long.
4/ We could eat unsprayed apples without worrying about consuming some unwanted wormy protein.
5/ Tomato season would not climax in picking 50 cherry tomatoes at a time but would extend gently into October, November and December.... and maybe forever.
How about you? If you had your druthers, what would you ask for in the garden?
