Is Bigger Better?

In the current society we live in I think we can say a definitive "YES", to the question asked above. Bigger is Better! We have bigger cars, bigger homes and bigger boats; even though Smart cars and the new Fiat Cinquecento are really adorable.

All kidding aside, there is a special pride that warms gardeners' souls when they harvest large and beautiful produce. These blueberries and beets were from our garden. Luckily, both tasted as delicious as they looked.

The secret to our blueberries, good amended soil, a thick mulch of pine needles and a cup of acid fertilizer in the spring.

The secret to large and nicely formed beets, consistent watering, and that's about all we did to make them grow. The center of the beets were solid flesh, not woody and oh so yummy.
