What a Vegetable Garden And What A Farm!
What a vegetable garden we have this year. Just outside the Elk Grove City limits is a perfect place to live and nurture a vegetable garden. These raised planter beds have drip irrigation and organic topsoil.
The tall plants to the left climbing the iron sculptures are green beans. We pick bunches daily. There are lots of herbs and peppers, tomatoes and two kinds of squash. There are lemon cucumbers, english cucumbers as well as spaghetti squash. The strawberries and blackberries are always fresh picked and amazing with ice cream.
My family loves to grow fresh food and freeze the excess. We have so much healthy food to share with family and friends. In the future, more people may plan to do some organized gardening to share the work and bounty with neighbors. Growing food gives an appreciation for the soil and water that we otherwise may be taken for granted. Farming creates fresh food on a daily basis which can help with so many health issues and create positive relationships within neighborhoods.
