The Vegetable Garden

Growing up, my parents always had a vegetable garden. It was always tomatoes and green peppers, but it helped to instill a fascination with growing food in our own backyard. I still love knowing that I'm eating something from my own backyard that was never touched by pesticide. Our vegetable garden has grown each year, but it really took off this year.

I'll admit that I was a bit nervous when my husband rented a sod cutter and pointed to the corner of our yard and explained it was the new location of our vegetable garden. It was a large corner, to say the least. It's hard to argue with a grown man transporting a sod cutter, however. So, our new garden was born. We spent hours planting that day, and things have really begun to take off.

Probably the best part about having your own garden is that giddy sense of excitment you feel when things begin to bloom and sprout. I find myself sneaking out to the garden every day, just to admire the little green tomatoes or ooo and ahh over the little stalks of broccoli. It's a beautiful thing.
