Veggie Gardening

Ever feel like the last non-gardener in the country? Hate to break it to you, but you probably are. Vegetable gardening, especially, is booming. More than one in three Americans are growing food in their own backyards, or even on their balconies, and their numbers are growing. It’s easy to see why. We want to know where our food is coming from. We want assurances that it’s fresh and healthy. And frankly, that weekly trip to the grocery store isn’t getting any easier on the wallet. It’s time to get your hands dirty and experience the joy of growing your own produce. Kathy Quarles, Garden Center Manager of Stauffer’s of Kissel Hill, answers your questions on starting your vegetables and enjoying a bumper crop.
