    Vegetable Garden?

    Saturday, January 28th, 2012

    So my brown thumb and I are going for take 2 on growing our own vegetables.
    🙂
    I had a tiny bit of success last year and managed to grow some broccoli, a couple of zucchinis and 1 yellow squash.

    My issue is this:
    If my broccoli (or tomato or pepper) row is successful, I now have… what, maybe 2 weeks to eat 9 or so heads of broccoli before it goes bad?

    Is there anything I can do to enjoy the vegetables of my labor for longer? I could probably freeze broccoli (could I?), but I can’t freeze tomatoes.

    I work so hard, and I want to be able to enjoy the things I grow.
