Love your show but have to tell you that for garden tools try the Fiskar garden knife (available at walmart $7.99) I can't imagine being without one now. It replaces so many tools! Very Handy! I have a fair size organic veg garden, roses , fruit trees and a lot of flowers. Love gardening almost as much as cooking the produce and Italian food. Another tip is that there are a lot of Italian imported seeds available at "Christmas Tree Shops" always 50% off! A lot of varieties I've never seen available anywhere else too and as you say 'are very reliable'
Again thanks for a wonderful show and keep up the great food!

I love your show and the recipes. For sure I am a frustrated cook. I host sunday dinner for our three girls and their families. When they are all here, it's quite a crowd.
Garden season in NH gets planted around Memorial Day, and I can't wait. I have my tomatoes, peppers and eggplant in peatpots ready for the planting. This year we bought a portable green house. It's just big enough to hold my plants.

Love your show, any Italian would. Keep on the gloves is my advise to myself, I start out gardening that way and for some reason they are off and my hands are a wreck not to mention my back. But I love it. Gardening, cooking, & even cleaning. The weather here in Oregon is so nice now but I know as soon as I plant my tomatoes we could still get a frost.
