When I lived in the country outside of Little Rock, I really enjoyed growing my own produce. I never used any pesticides and the tomatoes, potatoes, lettuce, green beans, corn, watermelons, cantaloupes, peas, and spinach were some of the best I've had. It was fun to grow some heirloom tomatoes and watermelons like "Moon & Stars" or grow purple potatoes. Fun times.
