My garden began in 1994, when I married my wife Jen. In 1997, our first child was born and since then our garden has continued to grow to number 6 due very soon. We have / will have 4 boys and 2 girls, all homeschooled and growing fast. Over the past 5 years, our family has turned our backyard into a culinary of herbs, fruits and veggies. At first, we planted Crepe Myrtles and some other things that looked pretty. I had to step back a little when I noticed that some of my little ones started eating leaves, grass and dirt. Hmmm, mb I should be more careful with what I plant with kids around? To make a long story short, everything I plant must be able to be eaten. I first started with Rosemary, Sage, Oregano, Lavender, and blueberry bushes. Quickly followed by grapes to this years addition of Sea Buckthorn and Blackberries. In addition, we added square foot gardening to the mix, and experimenting on ways to garden with out the use of lingering pesticides. Please take a moment and share tips and tricks plus a little story or two of your own as I will with you.
