How does your garden grow?

I had the chance to visit owner Ellen Kamps at her Foxtrot Organic Farm a couple of weeks ago where Alonna Koehneke, 3, of St. Charles was helping her mom, Michelle, pick out plants for their home garden. 

I romanticize one day having my own home garden where I can just pick a few tomatoes for a homemade salad, maybe some cucumbers. But I fear my brown thumb will get in the way.
