As you may know I love my garden.  Roses and flowers come pretty easily to me, but vegetables remain somewhat elusive.  My desire for raised beds brimming over with lush homegrown heirloom vegetables is peaked every spring as I start thumbing through the gardening magazines.  With the best of intentions, I carefully plant my little seeds and dream of all the delicious veggies I’ll soon be harvesting.   But sadly, it hasn’t yet worked out that way!   This year the slugs and snails decimated a good portion of my seedlings and a serious heat wave in May took its toll as well.   So, my little kitchen plot is a little bit of an underachiever in my mind.  But happily, a few plants did make it through and I was really pleased to be able to pick a handful of tomatoes this morning!
