I Can’t Wait to Plant Next Year!

August 5, 2016

“I can’t wait to plant [a garden] next year!” were the first words Terri said when I called to check in on this Friday evening.  “How is your garden doing?” she asked.  We shared our successes and failures.  She was quick to say what she would do differently, clearly taking away more than just fresh vegetables from this experience.  She said that she wants to learn to preserve what she has so it lasts through the winter months.  She lost her cucumbers, broccoli and onions.  But is having success with tomatoes, bell peppers, rosemary, parsley, basil, squash, and cantaloupe. “I’m so proud because we’re growing our food, using our food, and being creative with it.  And to know my kids are eating something grown without chemicals!”
