bring in a good garden

People in Haven felt good about Bobbi Anderson, but of course she’d just been in town for thirteen years and people would have to wait and see. Garrick, most agreed, had been as crazy as a shithouse rat. He always brought in a good garden, but that didn’t change his mental state. He was always trying to tell someone about his dreams.

    I take it to mean that he always harvested a lot of vegetables from his garden. I don't think it refers to a flower garden.
