Everyone thinks their garden is special. In Hamburg, Linda Klein says her garden is so popular that people stop by for tours.

That may be because her her garden is in the most unexpected place, the parking lot behind her popular South Towns restaurant called Savory's.

She grows eight kinds of peppers, and each one is hotter than the next, plus eggplant, beets, tomatoes and several varieties of herbs. "I have dill growing everywhere," said Klein.

All of her garden fresh veggies find their way into the restaurant and onto the menu at Savory's. Klein says her customers really appreciate it. She saves some money but what she really likes about gardening is how relaxing it is.

Sure it's a lot of work it. It takes her an hour to water every day and she admits, "I pray for rain."

Klein's not-so-secret to success in the restaurant business is her green thumb. It certainly keeps the regulars coming back.
