Bliss, I hear ya on the vacation. Last summer, I was gone 2 weeks back to back one vacation, the other business. Upon returning to my beloved plot, I discovered a severe case of squash gone wild. It literally ate my garden. This year a little more planning into the planting scheme will take place.

I have oranges, lemons, limes & kumquats. Does that count? I also have a healthy herb garden, but haven't had much luck with other things.

I tried tomatoes in both Arizona & Florida. In AZ, the birds ate all the blooms as fast as they popped up. When I moved back to FL I thought I'd have a chance. Weeellllllllllll, I guess I put them in too late, because by the time they were turning into tomatoes, we had way too much rain (at least that's what I was told). The fruits started splitting and exploding. I'm going to try again this year, but I need to get them in the ground in March I think.

I'd really love to get raspberry & blueberry bushes, but I don't think they do very well down here.
