After giving my gardens some water early this morning, I went up to visit my Dad’s garden. It looks awesome. Beautiful vegetables in nice straight rows. I gave my Dad several types of seedlings this spring and its fun to see how they have done under his care.
And I would say he has done better than me with them. Without a doubt his broccoli is better. His kale is nice too and his tomatoes are big and healthy looking. His lettuce is great. But them who’s comparing anyway. (I think I’ll add some fertilizer to my gardens tomorrow.)
This year I gave away maybe a hundred total seedlings to several gardeners: Dad, Elaine, Dave, Amelia and Chris. Giving away seedlings is another way of increasing the number of gardeners out there growing their own food. Whether you garden to save the earth, to save money, for super fresh food, or just for the fun of it, its nice to share some plants.
