So, I'm trying to embrace my new "country" lifestyle and realized a little dream of having a vegetable garden. It has been one of the most rewarding things I've ever done! First the Gunny and the boys built me a nice raised vegetable bed. We scaled in down in case we didn't like gardening and I totally regret that decision. It has been such a fun project for the older brother and I to do together. We water and inspect the plants. We watch for new growth and exclaim over the sprouting veggies!
Recently we picked our first fresh vegetables. There is a thrill to picking something in your own backyard. To knowing you grew it. And you all know I love to save a buck so not having to buy zucchini for my Turkey Zucchini Vegetable Pot is a huge plus! Fresh veggies are expensive and I'm happy to save on my grocery bill.
Maybe I'm a little bit country after all! You might be too...get out and grow something!
