Once again I am stepping out of my comfort zone and into the dirt.
That’s right, folks. I’m taking my pink polished thumb and willing it to turn green. My mom is an avid gardener, and my grandmother was too. I am mostly a failure in this department, but every year since I got married I give it a whirl.
Growing my own food is right in line with my parenting and food philosophies, but it takes a lot of effort and skill. South Florida seems to be a particularly challenging landscape, but this year I am having more success. Perhaps that’s because I’m actually watering and weeding it.
The year we are growing:
Kale, Kaleidoscope Carrots, Heirloom Tomatoes, Spinach, Arugula, Endive, Radishes, Basil, Rosemary, Chocolate Mint, Oregano, Rainbow Chard, Lemon Thyme, German Thyme, Strawberries, Meyer Lemons and Pineapples
Here we are a month and half from planting day:
