I've always liked to grow flowers, but have never really been interested in vegetables. My dad has grown a vegetable garden for as long as I can remember, and when I was younger I would help out with it a lot.

Now that I'm in New York, I'm taking over my in-laws' vegetable garden. I was originally planning on starting small, just growing a few tomatoes, potatoes, and cucumbers. Then I made the "mistake" of asking my in-laws what vegetables they would like in the garden, and they added on about 10 new items!
So, I'm jumping in with both feet! The vegetables I'm growing this year are:
- summer squash
- echinacea/cone flower
- lamb's ear
