I have caught the gardening bug

September 22, 2007 6:02pm CST
I cannot believe how much I now enjoy pottering about in my little garden. No sooner have the tomato plants been removed from their growbags and the soil turned over, then there I was in the garden center looking for vegetables that will do well over the winter. So...in have gone Turnips, Spinach and Garlic. The strangest thing is, I don't eat Turnips and I am not overly keen on Spinach, maybe I will just have to hide their taste with the garlic! I remember watching my father in his garden and wondering what enjoyment he could possibly get from growing his own misshapen vegetables, I just wish he was around to see me now, he would find it very funny indeed. Best regards, J.

Good luck with your winter crops Jake. I can understand where you are coming from on this.

For me it has to be spring. It's the first chance to get out of the house and really enjoy the weather after the winter. The spring rain comes and everything comes to life before your eyes. I love spring- the rebirth of nature the trees get leaves the grass gets green you plant gardens and flowers and flowers start popping up. School is out and I get to spend long days with my daughter. Swimming we camp a lot. Bike riding. You can go outside in a swimsuit and not be cold.

Hi there. Good for you, I caught the same bug when I was 10 years old, watching my grandma work in her awsome gardens... Now I have gardens of my own to work and we have them all around our house, we have many different fruits, a range of veges, a rose garden, a rock and cactus garden and many small gardens to break down our huge lawn... Happy gardening for your winter season...
