Saturday in the Garden: Your Small Space Garden, Breathtaking Baskets and Vegetable of the Month

Saturday in the Garden – Small Space Gardening and Beautiful Baskets and Potted Posies, and Vegetable of the month (tomato). Nancy Berlin posted these pictures on  Facebook. I hear this Saturday was a huge success! I am sorry I missed the rhubarb and strawberry,  and mock mincemeat green tomato pies made by Charlene Toloso!
