How our vegetable garden is supporting our healthy eating habits, despite our best efforts to totally ignore it all summer.
So, we planted a garden this year.
I am using the term “garden” rather loosely. We have some potted herbs – cilantro, basil and parsley. In terms of vegetables, we have four tomato plants next to the porch and one zucchini plant behind some shrubs bordering the patio.
They’ve necessarily grown into pretty hardy little plants. With all of our travel this summer, our yard (and garden) received very limited attention.
Fortunately – in this case – we’ve had a fairly rainy summer. We certainly weren’t around to water anything.
Which is why I was rather surprised when the boys came running in from the yard two weeks ago, yelling. “Mom! Mom! You won’t believe what’s growing in the backyard.”
