Food Friday: Time to plant a garden

How does your garden grow?

It’s Food Friday and I am asking this question, “Have you planted your garden yet?” It’s that time of year.  I know it’s a lot of work, but the benefits of your own garden are bounteous. Here are a few reasons to grow your own vegetables this year:
  • Vegetables are healthier than cookies.
  • Gardening is a form of cross training.
  • Vegetables in the garden are cheaper than a trip to the grocery store.
  • You don’t have to mow grass where your garden grows.
  • The neighbors will think you are resourceful.
  • Overabundance of vegetables provides an opportunity for charity.  Give them to your neighbors.
Planting a garden is a sign of hope.  Hope that there will be water for the growing season. Hope that you will be around to harvest your crop.  Hope that seeds will germinate and grow. Hope in the future.
What are you waiting for?  Get your garden planted and watch it grow!

Question: What vegetables do you ALWAYS plant in your garden?
