I realise that I am impatient and I give up too easily. NOT GOOD! But, there will be a Round Two to my garden, so I hope that the lessons learned will produce a bountiful harvest.
So, back to the ups:
If you don't garden, try it. You don't even need a yard. Container Gardening is very popular these days. I want to encourage everyone to grow your own food if possible. It's good for the environment and more importantly, it's good for your health. Gardening allows you to know where your food comes from and how it's been produced. It feels really good to allow my son to pull up a carrot, wash it off, and eat it right away.
