The one thing I miss most about where we used to live is my garden. I grew both flowers and vegetables in abundance. Because of the heat, the growing season here is in the spring or fall. Life is too just busy during those times of year, so I am at the mercy of grocery stores when it comes to fresh produce. That isn't to say I haven't tried to garden here. All I've managed to harvest is one sad tiny tomato. Oh, the plants were beautiful, they just didn't produce. And as for flowers, can we all say cactus.
