I grew up on a farm. We always had a garden. It was not a trend or a fad, it was just a fact of life. When I first went out on my own, I had a huge garden. Weeded, harvested, canned. Then, as so often happens, life gets busy. Moving, work, kids, no time for a garden. I’m getting back to basics. I realize the limitations on my time. I can’t have a big garden, yet. So I started small, I intend to expand slightly. One tomato plant, one cucumber plant, 3 different pepper plants and we had more than we could eat this summer. Soon I will be planting a couple of fall vegetables, maybe some onions. What a great and productive feeling! You should try it. Doesn’t have to be big. Start small.
