How Does Your Garden Grow...by Jessica
Look at the beautiful, freshly tilled garden bed just waiting to be filled with all sorts of veggies! (thanks Zack)
I'm going to need some serious advice. Juli told me yesterday what she found easy to grow: tomatoes, cilantro, zucchini, squash, broccoli, onions. I've also read that basil, cucumbers and green beans are supposed to be easy too. I know there should be some rhyme and reason to where / how I plant each of these and I'm going to really think about it and not just plant them willy-nilly and hope they do their thing.
The thought of sending my kids out to pick green beans for dinner, pulling a juicy red tomato off the vine and eating it warm from the sun, digging in the dirt to unearth a plump little onion...it makes me really excited...but I need to stop daydreaming about the possible veggies I may grow and focus on helping them to grow.
Because past history has proven me to not be so great at that.
Any garden advice would be appreciated.
