This year when I walk outside, I immediately get hungry from all of the potential food I am growing. I am growing my old favorites like tomatoes, cucumbers, and basil. But I am also growing winter squash and pole beans. I’ve been using a more scientific approach by using electronic PH reader for the soil and potted plants. I am also using a high quality soil from Fox Farms. The difference is tremendous.
