I enjoy making things – artsy-crafty things.  Now, I  feel the urge to expand my ability to “make” things, such as food.  I’ve thought about it before, but recently decided that this is the year that I would finally get serious about gardening.  I know it’s a bit late for certain types of crops, but I’m not going to let my procrastination stop me.  Better late than never. :-) 

Based on some quick research for the climate in which I live, here’s what I can possibly plant.  These are foods that I’m sure my family will eat.

  • Cucumbers
  • Lettuce
  • Peas
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Tomatoes

I guess a trip to the gardening section of the local hardware store is in order.  I’ll post more later.

What are some relatively low-maintenance crops for zone 6A?
