I Love Vegetable Gardening

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 51 People

    I have been tending a plot

    for 2 years now, trying out different veggies and fruits. It's a joy being able to harvest home grown produce, and trying out chutneys, I haven't yet beaten the slugs though.

    Freshness In the Garden

    How awesome is our God, who created the heavens and the earth. The earth is what I want to talk about. The good soil that we can plant a seed in and just watch it come out of the soil and grow into a beautiful something that we can eat. WOW! I love the dirt and I love the smell...
