For those who have a garden

Every time I go out to pick my garden I feel like I'm getting free food. I know it's not really free when you factor in labor, time, fertilizer, etc.. But it still feels free to me. It feels like a big Eff You to the grocery store!

I love it because I know what goes in it. I try to keep mine as natural as possible although I do fertilize with both organic and chemical fertilizers. My garden is virtually weed free since I put down landscape fabric and I use manual pest control as well as natural applications for pests as needed only.

At the moment I have cayenne peppers, jalapeno peppers, cucumbers, yellow squash and zucchini growing so fast we cant eat it fast enough. My bell peppers, tomatoes and eggplants are just about ready. And hopefully in about a month we'll have corn and okra to eat too.

I don't eat what MamaSan grows. She don't know it but I pee on her garden when I am outside drinking :D

My Dad has a garden and he had it the whole time I was growing up, it was about a 1/3rd of an Acre and produced more food than we knew what to do with. He would can stuff so it wouldn't go to waste. I don't think that man ever spent money on produce.

We always had a garden growing up. It only seemed natural and the right thing to do to have my own. I only wish I had paid better attention to my grandpa, I probably wouldn't have the trouble I've had with pests. Thank goodness for the internetz and the feed store or otherwise I'd have given up long ago.

When you have a garden it's similar to having a kid. You will seriously eff up anything that messes with it.

The reason I grow a garden is to GIVE the grocery store a huge EFF YOU. :lol: Mine taste better and I grow them from seeds that I kept from the previous harvest, so I revel in it.
