As far as I'm concerned, garlic gets the blue ribbon for growing your own. It's absurdly easy to plant and care for; it tastes great; it looks beautiful and it takes up so little ground that even those with very small gardens can raise enough to be self-sufficient in garlic for a good part of the year. All you have to do is choose the right varieties; plant at the right time, in the right soil; then harvest when just right and store correctly.
I started taking pictures of birds some 20 years ago, but after years of filling up my trash can with bad slides, I lost interest. My old photo equipment was collecting dust until digital photography came along. In November 2002, I traded in all of my old equipment and purchased a Nikon D100 digital camera along with a Nikkor 80-400mm VR zoom lens. I was back in business and bad images were ending up in my PC’s Recycling Bin instead of the the trash can. I needed a goal other than taking better pictures because I knew that if I kept at it, better pictures would eventually come along.
