Potatoes are a surprisingly satisfying crop to grow. If you’re not a huge fan of these tubers, tasting freshly harvested homegrown potatoes will definitely change your feelings about the crop.  Along with peas and onions, they are one of the first crops we plant in the spring. You really feel like you are doing something useful when burying the big chunks of 'seed potatoes.’

We think fresh homegrown peas are reason enough to have your own garden. They’re also one of the earliest and easiest crops to grow. In this episode we'll discuss how to plan for and grow peas in your garden.

Welcome back to part two of our series on cut flowers. If you haven't listened to part 1 of the series - episode 29 - go back and check that out before listening to this one. It will make more sense that way, and then you'll have Hilary's whole top 10 list. Last week we talked about annual flowers that can be direct seeded in your garden, and this week we're focusing on annual flowers that do better as transplants.
