(which I saved this Summer as an experiment) I usually buy a zucchini or two as well. And sunflowers, of course! It should be an interesting planting year, now that I will have room for drying beans, peas, and quinoa. Deciding not to try growing wheat, squash, oats, or barley - maybe if I can do some more sheet mulching.
