What's a fruit and what's a vegetable?

There is a lot of confusion about certain produce pertaining to what category they belong to. Tomatoes, for example. Fruit or vegetable? The confusion is warranted because there is a botanical definition that is in contrast to culinary acceptance and uses.

Botanically speaking, a fruit is any seed bearing structure that develops from the ovary of a flower. Technically tomatoes, squash, even eggplant are all fruits. Whereas vegetables are all other edible parts of a plant such as roots, stems, and leaves. Hence potatoes, spinach, celery and so forth are all vegetable.

As organic matter decomposes it causes the top inch of your soil to become acidic. Along with making the soil easier to work with rototilling and lime helps to neutralize the acid levels which is essential in growing vegetables.

    ~ Gary Fields, Windsor, Ct.

  • "My son Cooper and I had a great time planting a garden this year with Mike. We learned how to prepare the soil, plant, and care for the garden!  We've already enjoyed fresh peppers, cucumbers, and other vegetables this summer. We'll be calling Let's Grow Together again next year for this and other projects in the yard!!" 

    ~ Shelly Silver, West Hartford

  • "At first I used Let's Grow Together for just a clean up and mulching. I so appreciated both the price and the way they treated me that I have brought them back for several more projects including installing clematis vines all down my fence line. I'm sure I will use them many more times in the future."

    ~ James Malcolm, West Hartford

Not only are my parents happy with the work and I with the price, but they treat my parents with a great deal of courtesy and respect. That's something that money can't buy."
