First of all, a big thank you to all our veterans on this Veteran’s Day. Thank you for serving our country!
This year I decided that I wanted to plant my very own garden and grow my own produce. I found out that my step-grandpa has a humongous garden that he grows every year. How perfect! He gave me my own little section and I was off to work!
He told me what to plant where and how to plant the seeds.
The next time I went back, there were little sproutlings!
Now don’t think everything just magically grew. Kalvin (my grandpa) watered everything for me! I just had to do the weeding….
I grew everything you can think of – beans, peas, carrots, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, kale, broccoli, and cauliflower!
And now some close ups of the crops!
I probably planted a little too much. I was eating beans for days!
I did sell some at the farmer’s market!
I’m so thankful that I experienced my first year of gardening and I look forward to many more! A huge thanks goes out to Grandpa Kalvin. Without his help I’d have never had such a marvelous garden!
Do you grow your own produce?
