Tell us more about you.:

I don't expect to save money by gardening but I would like to work towards breaking even one day. That is I would like to save on my food budget about what I spent on gardening. 

if you have a crop specialty, a favorite crop to grow then what is it?:

Okra I suppose. It gets so tall, makes a beautiful flower (which dies in about 12 hours...tragi romantic) and it is so prolific. Next it's a tie between cucumbers and tomatoes. Tomatoes are wonderful for sandwiches and so colorful but cucumbers posses a will to live and produce that captures my heart.
