What are you growing this year?

I’m not going to lie. My husband and I haven’t always liked vegetables. Shoot, there are still some that we’re scared of. But that is one of the reasons we got into gardening. I wanted to enjoy eating them more. I hated buying produce that was over priced, under ripe, tasteless and less nutritious than the vegetables our grandparents grew. So I got to thinking, why not have a garden? I loved the idea of expanding our taste buds on vegetables our family enjoyed, plus having the entire family outside digging and picking produce was a simple joy.


Have you thought about having a garden? If you already have a garden, have you started thinking about what you want to grow this year? Is there anything you are growing that you didn’t last year? We are expanding our garden this year, and putting in a few boxes in the front yard (probably should talk to our landlord first), we just didn’t have enough last year!

Here are some of the things we will be growing this year:
