Why I Grow A Garden

Every year I plant a garden. It is my hope that it will feed us and save money. Each year the garden looks different.   We have moved a lot over the past four years,  and every Spring we have been in a new place. Each place I carve out a space to plant. It means we will be there for a season, see our labors through and watch our food grow.

Other times I have had to carve away the grass, rocks and weeds to make my own space. This is hard work, but so worth it to see my herbs and veggies grow.
