I really enjoyed the comments section. People had a lot of "pennies for your thoughts."

I didn't even notice the pennies on the flower bed until I read all the comments and checked again. I have heard they are good to keep away slugs and snails. I've actually seen people cover an entire bowling ball in pennies and use it as a lawn ornament and bug deterrent. This is a great article any gardener I'm sure would like fresh home grown veggies year round!

I stopped planting vegetables because we don't eat them all, one tomato plant is all
