When I moved back the mainland, we planted a vegetable garden. I’ve always enjoyed working in the yard, and a vegetable garden was something I’d been wanting to do for a long time. Even when we were in Hawaii for 5 years, we often discussed planting a garden when we had enough space to accommodate our design.
In March, we planted Lettuce, Squash, Cucumber, Tomato, Basil, Serrano Pepper, Bell Pepper, Snap Peas, Cilantro, Mint and a few other Herbs. Over the last few months we’ve been harvesting a lot of Zucchini & Lettuce. Our tomatoes are finally starting to come in now. Bell peppers are still small, but growing larger by the day. Our Serrano pepper plant is producing more Serrano peppers than we’ll possibly consume so we started pawning them off on the neighbors.
Growing your own food is really something everyone should attempt at some point in their lives. It gives you a much bigger appreciation for the life of a farmer and what goes into putting food on a table.
