Since we are allowed to write about anything we want, I will write about my vegetable garden. I don’t know if that’s relevant to the class, but since our course theme is power and choices, I would think almost anything would be relevant to that…
Well, this is my favourite time of year because I am hard at work in my garden. It is a lot of hard work, time, and dedication, but the pay-off makes the hours well worth it! I grow so many different things I hardly ever go to the market for anything other than meat! I grow Lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, onions, beets, beans, cucumbers, radishes, potatoes, and the list goes on and on. I also have two apple trees, but those aren’t much upkeep other than picking up fallen apples off the ground before the wasps get at them.
After a long day of listening to people bitch about stuff and pretending to care, nothing soothes me more than getting home to work in my garden. It’s nice to do it alone, and it’s also something that my boyfriend and I love to do together. We have equal appreciation for vegetable gardening. The hobby was passed down to us from his grandpa who was an avid vegetable gardener, and taught us everything we know about it. The taste and nourishment of home-grown garden salads and steamed veggies everyday make me feel strong, happy, and healthy!
I hate flower gardening, I make minimal efforts towards that… They attract bee’s and I can’t eat them, flowers suck.

I think it's awesome that you grow your own vegetables! I just grow tomatoes, right now I'm growing, roma, 2 tiny tims, cherry, and one other one, I just can't remember its name. I wish I had more room in my back yard to grow more than just tomatoes, because like you said it is way healthier for you and also cheaper! I also agree with you about flowers, I hate bees, the only thing good about flowers is that they look pretty but than they can't really provide much for you.

You know I would love to be able to have a vegetable garden. I tried oncw many moons ago when we first moved into our house and it did not go as well as I had wished. Then we got our dog and she totally wrecked my little garden area. I hope to one day try again and have some success. Good for you that you are so successful in your gardening venture I truly envy you for that.
