There is no produce as fresh as what you grow in your own back yard. My mother in-law has a charming garden surrounded by a white picket fence that my father-in-law built for her, and she grows produce all year long in the south. I have never had more delicious carrots than the ones that I plucked myself, straight from the earth in her garden. There is a distinctively different rich flavor from organic home grown produce, that is hard to find in a grocery store. She grows tomatoes, garlic, onions, broccoli, carrots, melons, arugula, peppers, and corn...just to name a few.
