McNay Research and Demonstration Farm
Vegetable gardening is increasingly popular in today’s economy, especially since there is the potential to save money by growing food at home. One of the themes for the 2009 Home Demonstration Garden was vegetables that have the potential to reduce grocery bills. Certain vegetables such as potatoes, winter squash, onions, tomatoes, beans, and beets can be stored or processed, allowing them to be kept long after harvest. Other themes featured in the 2009 Home Demonstration Garden were white pumpkins, annual grasses, and new or unusual flowers.
