Grow a great produce garden

It doesn’t matter how pretty the plant is, if Mary Buschmann can’t eat it, she’s not going to bother with it. The Flossmoor resident plants a produce garden every year, drawing ingredients for summer cooking and freezing vegetables to use all year long. In early March, Buschmann was still using up last year’s garden goodies, tomatoes from the freezer and carrots her husband, Joseph, had in the fridge since September.
