I have come to the conclusion that there are two types of gardeners. Social and working. Last year, our first gardening year, we were social gardeners. "Oh look at the pretty garden, we grew that!" Hmm..but do we dare eat it? Nah..it's too cool to eat. :) Or maybe a little too scary? Actually eating something you plucked from your yard? It's a concept that takes some time to get used to.
Well, this year we are big, bad working gardeners. We eat what's in our garden. I haven't bought a single tomato, carrot, cucumber or pea this summer. It's totally awesome! And we have massive rows of onions to tide us through the winter. I also have some acorn squash getting nice round and fat. The kids can't go outside without snacking on strawberries or raspberries. It's great-a little piece of do it yourself right in the backyard.
Who else gardens out there? What should I try next year? This year we have carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, acorn squash, corn (which is getting totally huge and we joke about making our own crop sign), strawberries, peppers, and beets. I think that's it..
Thank you for all the interest in the fabric for sale! You guys will either hate or love me, but I realized I forgot to add about 8 lots to that link. Here is a new updated one. I took off everything that sold yesterday as well.
