The best reason for our family to grow a little, organic family garden is that everyone has been involved this summer. From my husband helping me water to the kids planting and picking beside me, it’s been for everyone. I’m proud that we’ve had some days when an entire meal came directly from the garden. Grilled squash with fresh heirloom tomatoes and romaine lettuce filled our plates for some dinners. I’ll be picking pole beans again today for another meal.
Occasionally we take seeds from foods we’re eating and give them a little spot in the garden to see if they’ll grow. So, a little cantaloupe seems to have popped up, too.
