My food garden is growing and I'm feeling so proud! I'm a big supporter of eating locally and also of growing what you eat, and eating what you grow. It is a known fact that we must have good eating habits (if we haven't already) as we age. It's never too late to start so even starting in your 50s is fine -- but start somewhere.
Every Spring, I have the custom of planting a food garden at my daughter and her family's house. My granddaughters and son-in-law would jump right in and get their knees and hands all dirty to make the garden happen. This year, it's being done at my house but we had a late start. This past winter was extremely long and I had second thoughts about growing a vegetable garden. Anyhow, Sage - my middle granddaughter - manged to encourage me to still go ahead with growing a garden so of course, I acquiesced.
Some of them have now been transferred to the actual garden in the backyard and of course, we are excited!!
Look out for future posts with my garden at it's different stages.
