Adventurous when it comes to gardening. Last year we had a little patch where we grew corn – big enough for one person to enter – just like in “Field Of Dreams”. This year we decided to primarily have watermelons – good to eat and fun to carve ..
I love to grow pear tree in my home as it got beautiful, snowy white flowers and sweet fruits.
