Welcome to My Garden
My name is Matt and this is my future vegetable garden.
I suppose the recession, global climate change, salmonella scares, and the dangers of pesticides have all contributed to my desire to garden. Mostly, I feel driven to slow down and live a little more purposefully – hoping my 3 year-old and even my 17 year-old daughters will discover something about living well along the way. I guess this is my modern day freedom garden.
Despite having very little experience in actually growing my own food, I’m going big on this garden. I’ve spent the winter scouring seed catalogs, gardening how-to books, blogs, and TV shows and I’ve just dirtied up my shiny new shovel digging the first few beds – mostly in the wrong place because I rushed to see how well the shovel worked before taking time to measure.
I look forward to sharing my adventures in gardening. If you would like to follow along, you can subscribe to the RSS Feed..
