They love the heat so we’ll keep them in the greenhouse.

Looking forward to seeing how they progress 🙂

  1. Hi Thelma, that’s how I grow all my veggies!
    I buy organic produce and cut the ends off celery, carrots Green onions, garlic, potatoes, leaks, yams, etc. I put them in clear mason jars with water and set them on a widow till they
    Get roots or sprout then plant them!
    It is also a good way to ensure that Monsanto
    Has not treated it as they do with most commercial seeds. It is a good way for a small Gardner like me to grow a few veggies. But it is nothing compared to your beautiful enormous garden! Also I am no longer with shaw for emails.
    Would love to stop by and see you this summer!
    Take care my friend and hi to Jeff!
    Louise Gau👌🏽👍😊❤️

    1. That’s interesting that you grow your veggies this way! How did the yams work out? Did you get many?
      It would be really nice to see you, hope you can make it.
