Everyone has pretty much finished getting their gardens planted and are watching the first green sprouts poke through the brown earth. I am not one of these people. I don't like digging, hoeing, weeding or getting dirty. At the moment I have a cactus that requires 1 ounce of water a month and a basil plant in a self-watering pot that requires little attention from me. But I love fresh produce and I love to cook. So I do daydream about having a garden. And one day I intend to get over the whole getting dirty thing and have a garden that will cater to my love of eating and cooking.
Though I hate raw tomatoes, I do love just about every tomato product out there, with sun-dried tomatoes on the top of my list.
I can almost taste all the salads, sauces, stews, pies and jams that would come out of such a garden.
