I’ve been growing a garden for years. Since I was around 10 or so. My parents had a garden and I was raised with the home grown goodness. So, I keep the garden thing going. The big garden is still at my Mom’s house. We work together on it and get more from it for everyone. Not to mention its easier. I’ve also started a raised garden bed here at the apartment that we have been growing herbs in. Had pretty good luck with last year.
