Re-post: Greetings From the Garden


Over the last two years I have developed a love of gardening. I completely converted my small backyard into an organic vegetable garden, with peas, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, blueberries, and much more growing side by side. It’s become something of a secret garden!

My goal is to transition into being 100% organic (including body care products). I’ve found that the cheapest, quickest, and easiest way to do it is to grown your own fruits and veggies. Not only do you save tons of money by growing your own foods (you can buy meat and dairy at the organic/farmers market), but it’s also a great workout! Everyday I get a bunch of “visitors” to my garden- butterflies, bees, dragonflies, turtles, and all types of birds (inc. hummingbirds<- my favs!). If you don’t have a yard, you can always look into container gardening, where you grow your plants in planters on terraces or windowsills! There’s nothing like making a meal out of produce you grew yourself!
