The Power of ProtoGrow in Pictures – Harvest time

ProtoGrow has really delivered this growing season. Where I live, we’ve had rain – some say too much rain – and many crops have suffered and rotted from the overabundance of water. But my garden?

How to Cook Collards

I’m not much of a cook, so thank goodness that Mrs. Greenfield is! You can’t survive if you can’t stand to eat what you grow, and collards definitely need some “help” before you chomp. Here are my collards growing in the garden: Collards are really good for you, just like cabbage, but they DO need [...]
