Do you want to know how to eat more veggies? Simple. Plant them yourself! There is nothing more tantalizing to eat than something you’ve grown yourself. I grew up in a farming community where it was an absolute pleasure to harvest our own vegetables and make delicious meals from your own backyard farms. I am hoping to share that joy with my kids.
My youth group at church has a small box in the community garden and today we got together and planted some veggies.
We planted a row each of zucchini squash, carrots, tomatoes, sweet basil and cress.
I will be visiting the garden everyday to water it and look for the first sign of a sprout. And the kids will come in on weekends to do their part.
Just call us Organic Farmers!
