Getting Food From My Own Garden
April 25, 2016 6:52pm CST
I've finally developed a green thumb. Lately I've had some financial troubles which made me rethink the way I live my life. I could no longer afford to go out and eat just anywhere. Plus, all that fast food was seriously damaging my health. So I started making a garden.It's been a couple of months now and I've had a couple of really good harvests from my garden. I started out with potatoes. They seemed to be the easiest to plant. Plus, I watched the martian so there was some inspiration there... I waited a couple of weeks and voila! I had some potatoes to harvest! Man, eating those potatoes gave me some satisfaction knowing I started them out on my kitchen counter slicing them and placing them on wet tissue paper to start. I've also planted some lettuce, cabbage, carrots, beans and I am currently waiting for the upo and ampalaya to reach maturity. Onions and garlic seem to be pretty easy to grow too. I also have some lemons in my backyard. So, I guess, making the decision to move to a house with a bigger backyard has paid off in the end. I've cut down my spending to almost half just for food alone and I feel healthier eating organic food grown from my own garden. Have you considered getting food from your own garden too?

I have considered it! As a matter of fact I own a property where I can do that. The problem is that my place there is far away from civilization. I can only use it for camping two or three days. When I have my own car, I will be thinking on starting my own vegetable garden.
