Kim - Yep, these and MANY more have all been organically grown in my garden! Tomatoes are ripening, and peppers of every description are getting ready.

Chris - Next time I am in the Bay Area I will. In the mean time I took 90 organic eggs (5 - 18 packs) and two bags of produce to my local food bank. They use the perishable food in the soup kitchens in this area. If you click the photo, it opens another post I wrote on our local food bank.

Those look great! My grandmother used to steam theirs from their garden, with butter, sometimes fry them...either way they were delicious and now I'm getting the taste for them...thanks!

Rich, Every time I see your garden I wish I were up to it....even a small one!  I am having some major landscaping work done, you never know!  I would love to eat organic and can't always find it.

Cris - My mother used to prepare them with butter as well! I love to slice them up and use them in stir fry or add them to a great pasta primavera.

Betina - Would love to! My tomato plants are covered with lots of green fruits, almost ready...maybe some fried green tomatoes would do the trick.

BLR Guy - Fresh is best! Peppers of every sort are nearing ready too!

Carole - A big movement in the past few years has been to integrate vegetables into landscapes. Many vegetable plants have beautiful form and colors, especially squashes, peppers, and eggplants. Though they die off every winter, this can be a benefit as it keeps them from becoming too large and by changing them up every year, you can refresh and rejuvenate your landscape. Cabbages are also frequently used all over the south as a landscape plant during the cold fall and winter months. Maybe you could integrate vegetables into your new landscape; wouldn't hurt to talk to your landscaper about it if this type of usage interests you.

Betina & Accent Positives - Sorry for the delay in responding. From building custom themes for new members to helping them set up their accounts to writing articles and tutorials, I am extremely busy with Positive Real Estate Professionals (PREP). Busy is a GREAT thing and I am definitely not too busy to assist new (and existing) members personally when they need it. We are constantly researching new ways to improve both the visitor and member experience on the network. The network is doing very well and growing.

Anyone caught this new book by Randy Jones called "The Richest Man in Town? Not your typical wealth book. Discusses many strategies that go into wealth. Pretty good read. http://www.amazon.com/Richest-Man-Town-Twelve-Commandments/dp/0446537837

Nothing beats homegrown veggies. Keep up the good work on PREP and I hope to see you back on AR again soon.

Cheers!
