    Do you keep a garden or have wild fruits or veggies on your property?

    I would love to have a bunch of fruit trees on some property.




    I have even heard some smart towns are planting fruit trees around their towns for the homeless and those that just want a snack.

    I dream of having a garden and being able to grow my own vegetables, herbs, and fruit.

    I grow flowers and other plants, but no veggies or fruit. I love to sit and look at the vines and ivy growing from the hanging baskets.

    I have a fairly large garden with a couple of fruit trees, a pond, lawn and flowers

    I have wanted an indoor herb garden for a few years now.

    Oh, yes. We have apples trees in a variety of apples, including crab apple. Crab apples make great juice. We have plum trees that are so fragrant when they blossom, you can smell them all over our yard. We have a rhubarb patch and raspberry bushes, under which are buried two of our cats who died of old age and loved to stalk little creatures under them when they were younger. We have flower beds and a huge vegetable garden. So many fresh vegetables are great cooked on the outdoor grill.
    I may not be able to cook, but I think I am pretty good at growing food.

    yup.

    But nothing much any more.

    Over the last few years, we have found that we have a hard time keeping up with the produce for 2 of us.

    So this year, we've planted lettuces, kale and tomatoes.

    Although we also appear to have a crop of potatoes coming up from last year.

    have wild blueberries and raspberries---and a fig tree---don't try to grown anything like tomatoes---too much work-- easier to go to a farmers market

    Large organic garden, but it's a lot of work. Keep saying it's the last year.

    I filled in the Onion and Potato patch back to grass this year but did still grow a batch of Garlic.
    The main garden has a variety of sweet, frying, and hot peppers. A row of Romaine and a row of Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce. A row of 3 types of Swiss Chard and 15 Tomato plants from Cherry to large Orange, Yellow and red varieties.

    Only when I was a kid. Most of the stuff we grew was meant to get us through the winter: potatoes, tomatoes, berries, cherries, apples, cucumbers, onions, beets, carrots, etc. I've never lived anywhere where I could grow food. There are no community gardens in Peterborough.

    /\ surely you remember the special equipment, expense, work space, storage space and labor involved in preserving all that stuff.

    Did you have a summer kitchen?

    ^ The 'special equipment' and labour was 5 sons and 2 daughters. The work space was the kitchen counter. The storage space was a cool basement.

    What is your point? My parents had 7 kids to provide for in the 1950s and 60s. What did you expect them to do?

    I know Salem has at least on community garden. I think they are a cool idea.



    I have wanted to buy one of those Topsy Turvy tomato plant things to try, but I am worried others would take the tomatoes.

    My mom's ex girlfriend rented a house on a cherry orchard for a few years. Salem is known as The Cherry City. It was nice to go for walks and try different kind of cherries in the "back yard."

    Have you tried growing mushrooms indoors? Neither have I.

    Give you some broth without any bread; then whipped you all soundly and put them to bed.

    It's always a good idea to buy several plants. We prefer to grow them from seed. The tomatoes will keep growing until the season is over, so it isn't a disaster if someone takes a few.

    Cherries are for popping.

    A summer kitchen, or harvest kitchen, is a second kitchen set up outside the house. Most commonly, I believe, on a screened in back porch, but I have seen them as separate buildings, or in a well ventilated basement.

    Canning/preserving enough food to feed a family until the next harvest season, at least a year, not just a winter, takes a lot of space, large kettles and metal baskets, grinders, cutting boards/chopping blocks, lots of jars, a big sink, etc.

    The process is very time consuming, and takes a lot of heat. Heat that is/was best kept outside the house in already hot weather.

    Cooking large meals and baking for a large family and sometimes farmhands, also produces a lot of heat. Hence the summer kitchen.

    These days, people have taken to using the backyard grill for the same reason - keep the heat outside.

    In The Netherlands, we have various types of farms -often originally with their own orchards- mostly with all functions underneath a single roof. I've never heard of anyone having a separate outer kitchen just to keep the main building cooler. The only summer facility I know of in traditional Dutch farms is planting deciduous espaliers on the sun side (south) that are in leaf in summer so as to shut out overabundant sunlight and that are leafless in winter so as to optimally benefit from the sparse winter sun.
