Albert County spans an interesting area, with diverse landscapes from coastal areas to rocky hilltops and winding valleys. No matter where you reside in this up-and-down county, there is one thing we all share: the unpredictable weather. Though the weatherman claims one thing on the radio, we can look out our windows and see the exact opposite. Growing in an area close to a body of water can be tricky. For us, it's the tide that’s tricky. It can bring weather in and take weather out quite quickly. It leaves areas covered in thick fog where the sun can’t get through, and many times it brings wind. So, the question remains…what do we grow in our gardens that will reap a good harvest and not succumb to the drastic temperament of Mother Nature?
