Sometimes I get terribly daring and pick something random that I've never grown before, just for the sake of experimentation. These are a few varieties I'm eyeing for 2019.
Animal companions such as rabbits, chinchillas, and degus (as well as guinea pigs and mice) enjoy fresh produce as much as we do. Consider growing some of these tasty treats to share with your little friends.
Insect allies such as ladybugs, braconid wasps, and lacewings can help control (and even eliminate) pests like aphids, mites, and caterpillars from your garden.
