jaxmom1I am already making plans

I have successfully grown some things before, but I am committed to having a garden with enough variety to make an impact on my grocery bill. I am sick of buying produce that is ugly, expensive and has no flavor. I am excited at the prospect of including my 2 1/2 year old in the process and therefore increasing his awareness and love of not only HOW things grow, but how much flavor veggies truly have. I am going to be doing a lot of reading the next couple of weeks on planning, seeding, planting, etc. We just bought our first house and I think renting has really been a detriment to me never planting a garden. 7 years ago


I love plants!!! I can’t wait to buy my own house…then I can really go for it with the gardening stuff. 7 years ago
