I’ve been spending a lot more time in the garden lately.  I’m still learning, and there’s been a bit of collateral damage, but I’ve had success as well.  It felt really great when I could cook a stew with the pickings from my Lazy housewife green beans.

Here’s a great tip I recently tried, and it worked amazingly well:

Take a potato, make a few small holes in it.  Put lemon seeds in there and bury it in the ground.  Soon you’ll have a few baby lemon trees…

See you in the garden!
