I love all these reasons. I also love that my kid will eat veggies right off the plate and when she occasionally tries to tell me she doesn’t like a particular vegetable such as broccoli I can say. Oh your silly remember how you ate it out of the garden? Or the days that I try to harvest say a bunch of carrots and half of them disappear from the sink as wash them and she munches happily.

You can certainly spend a whole lot of money on your garden, but I tend to find almost everything I need for free or very inexpensively.

All of our plants are started from seed sourced from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. A packet of seeds goes a long way and most will last for a few years! I also love to have local seed exchanges to get new, different seeds and make new friends.
