"I just can't play golf every day, so I do a little gardening," said John McHugh, as he tended his plants Wednesday in his Heritage Farm garden plot in Sea Pines on Hilton Head Island. "I've been doing it since '92." He's got tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, turnip greens, potatoes and onions growing in his 50-by-50-foot garden, and he is expecting a good harvest. "The cool weather and the rain we had has slowed production," he said of the growing season so far, "but it's coming on now."
