Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating.

Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating. I think my first thought was, "What does that mean?" You ask your doctor and he says just avoid that food. It's just a skin test. They aren't entirely accurate.

I am going to attempt to give you ideas and recipes on how to avoid corn. It can be quite the challenge.

Me at the Farmers Market? and the Vinson Watts Tomato

I am anxiously excited to join the farmers market this spring.  I am going to attempt to sell some of my garden produce as well as a few craft items.  I heard okra sold really well last year.  Okra is very easy to grow, so I will definitely put in a couple dozen okra plants.  Perhaps I will have an extra cantaloupe, and a few green peppers too.  Maybe I can sell some lettuce, spinach, green beans, beets, kale, and swiss chard.  I already started my Vincent Watts tomato plants.  I got a Vincent Watts plant from the farmers market last year.  I saved some seed and have 6 plants sprouting for this year.  Perhaps I can capitalize on the specialty tomato. 

The Vinson Watts was originally called the Evans tomato from Wilson Evans of Lee County, Virginia. Vinson Watts was given the Evans family tomato seed in the spring of 1956, and developed it in the Moorehead, KY area for 50 years into the tomato it is today.  The Vincent Watts resembles a pink beefsteak tomato.  The tomato seed was first available to the public in 2006 by the Baker CreekHeirloom Seeds.

Mmmmmm I love okra! I've never started a garden & I don't have a ton of room, but I'm going to this year. I'll have to include okra now that you've said it's easy to grow. :o)
