52 week project - Week twelve - Gardening

I love the idea of growing my own groceries. Not only would it be a large savings but the satisfaction of biting in to a food that I knew was grown without chemicals and suffering would just taste better.

Ok, this isn't just a theory of mine, I've actually successfully grown my own garden and eaten the fruits of my labor. Every year the children beg me to start a new garden, so I weed the old plot, till it, clean and prep it for the seedlings. About a week into this magical experience the kids lose interest and I am forced to weed, feed, and care for the crops myself.

I still love my time spent out there in the sunshine watching the sprinkler rain on the garden. I talk to God when I'm out there and the toads seem to listen. Every so often I get to pick a ripe tomato or a green bean. I even rinse and eat some right in the garden, it's my little slice of heaven.

Do you garden? What do you grow? What is the easiest plant to care for?
