MINNEAPOLIS - Dawn Steward was one of many rookie gardeners who tried growing vegetables for the first time last year. But her yields were underwhelming. "I didn't know what I was doing," Steward said of her attempt to start peppers and shallots from seed in her St. Paul, Minn., home. "They were fine until I watered them. Then they all died. I think it was my lack of experience. " Still, that didn't dampen her enthusiasm. Homegrown produce has too many benefits not to keep trying, she figures.

On a 7,000-square-foot plot in a community garden, Elise Payne used to produce tomatoes by the bushel and winter squash by the barrel. In recent years, her vegetables decimated by rabbits, deer and groundhogs, Payne, of Strafford in Chester County, has switched crops and now grows thousands of flowers, most of which she dries for mounting on gift items that she sells through a small business. Payne misses the vegetables, but she's become fascinated by the variety of flowers that are easy to grow and equally easy to preserve for winter color if you harvest them at the right moment.

Do some intensive vegetable gardening. There's a long weekend ahead, and, hopefully, you'll spend part of it in the garden. Keep cool-season greens picked, and as they go to seed, get ready to do that last harvest before composting the remains, or turning them under along with some well-rotted compost. Do some succession planting: Plant a few rows of squash or beans, but save some room to put in another planting of the same thing in two weeks. This theoretically spreads out the harvest over a longer time, although, in reality, it will all come in while you're on vacation.

You take your suburban vegetable gardener . . . He may think he knows it all. But, let's face it, how much to do have to know to grow a beet in the 'burbs? You just run out in your backyard, toss a seed in the soil, and water it with the lawn hose . . . In the city, it's different . . . and much more difficult. In the city, folks rarely have enough ground - or ground that gets enough sun - for a backyard garden. So they have to find patches of open land somewhere else . . . maybe a house has been torn down, maybe a trash-strewn lot can be cleared . . . In the city, you have to know such tricks as how to get water from the corner fire hydrant.

Roger Doiron has an idea for the next eater-in-chief: Bring back the victory garden! He wants the next president to plant an organic vegetable garden on the front lawn of the White House, one that would supply fresh produce to the first family and local food cupboards; set an example of self-sufficiency, healthy eating and sustainability for the whole country; and make a statement about what we grow in front of our homes.
