My Mother-in-Law is an amazing gardener and this year she offered some of her land and raised beds for me to learn and grow my own garden. We started way back in February preparing the soil and then planting out first seeds in the covered bed in March. Despite not always getting over there to pick fresh greens and feeling a bit like I'm not helping enough, I love it! Yes, it would be easier if it were in my own backyard, but this is by far the next best thing. I've focused on growing spinach, kale, rainbow chard, carrots, cucumbers, all sorts of herbs, broccoli, cauliflower, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, beets, radishes, and a whole bunch of other yummy stuff.
