My husband and I enjoy growing organic heritage tomatoes. I also grow organic blueberries, and any green vegetable that will produce for me in any given year.  We keep up with family in Florida, California and Tennessee.  Movies and reading are passions of mine, and we always seem to have a house project under way- whether we enjoy it or not!
