We always grow something each year. Generally, it’s tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers and some kind of greens.
I was in the checkout at the grocery store and a magazine caught my eye. It was called eat what you grow or something like that… I cannot find the magazine right now, otherwise I would have put the title. heh heh heh
Anyways, that really intrigued me. Can we grow our vegetables this year? While I am not gung ho enough to only eat what we grow, I would love it if we only bought items at the grocery store that we did not grow ourselves!
We have a pretty big backyard, need to get the dimensions from hubby. But we currently have 1 tangerine tree, and 4 orange trees. We already share the fruit with the squirrels and my family. We also have a guava tree but I do not really care for the fruit. Plus the tree gets so big and branchy, hubby prunes it back a LOT. We also planted a blueberry bush and a raspberry bush last fall but it is in the front yard, where there is not an automatic watering system. I am hoping the plants will pull through so that I will have something from them this year!
I’m going to peruse the magazine and see what they suggest. I am uber-excited to start my garden this year!
