I spent a lot of time this year in my garden. Gardens are wonderful. One especially wonderful part is making money off them by selling vegetables to your mother. This is when having numerous voracious brothers pays off: The more they eat, the more I sell. We are currently working on the 18 pounds of garlic which were harvested last fall and also thirty sugar pie pumpkins.
I love growing herbs even more than pumpkins. Sadly, there was not enough room in my garden to grow many, but I was able to borrow some of Dad's garden for most of them. I raided neighbor's gardens for some more and ended up with 57 of my favorite herbs!
