  1. I grew up gardening so I have SO many memories, but one of my favorite is when I was very young (3-4?) I decided it would be a good idea to eat beets straight from the garden without washing them or anything and came home dyed red and dirty!

  2. Toss up: either watering my grandmother’s flowers on hot summer days in my underwear at 5 years old, or watching my son “check” the baby carrots we grew this summer by munching on them, dirt and all.

  3. Growing up we had a big garden and every night mom would send me out to get some lettuce, peppers, radishes, green onions for the salad. Picking the strawberries was another fun time because I knew we would be treated to strawberry shortcake.

  4. I have an ornamental fish pond in the garden and one of the frogs was trying to swallow a whole sparrow that it had caught on the waterfalls. Would like the Tomato – Cherokee Purple to add to the garden, would look great on my salads in the fall.

  5. Tomato – Cherokee Purple would be a great addition to my garden and on my salads in the fall.
    Best memory was when I found one of the bull frogs from the pond had caught a small sparrow on the waterfall and was trying to swallow the bird whole, but the wings where preventing it from happening.

  6. I loved gardening with my little grandfather. I remember my job was taking care of the tomato plants and the squash. He would never let me care for the flowers…he said they only knew him. HA!

  7. Growing up we had a garden every summer and it was always my job to make sure it was watered and weeded. I hated it, but always appreciated the produce. Even though I hated maintaining the garden, it’s still one of my favorite memories.

  8. My favorite gardening memory is of being a child and enjoying the strawberries he was growing in the backyard. I still love the smell of strawberries flowers more than anything. Those berries were delicious, although our dog probably got more of them then we did.
