- Eat Fresh Produce - There is nothing like fresh corn and tomatoes from the garden. Nothing in the store can compare.
- Saves Money - Seeds really are cheap and square foot gardening is so economical that it will save us money. If you've read my blog for any length of time, then you know how much I enjoy saving money!
- Better for us - We don't have to worry about the food containing harmful chemicals or pesticides. I read an article in All You (a magazine) a couple of months ago and was surprised of how many foods are shipped from overseas or from across the country. It just makes sense to grow your own food if possible.
Thankfully, the guy in our church who introduced us to the idea has also helped us get started. He built us three 4x4 gardens and then helped us fill them with the right soil. We could have done it without his help, but we are always so thankful for anyone's assistance!
We have planted lima beans and green beans thus far. In a few weeks we will plant, tomatoes, corn, and okra and maybe a few flowers. Josh is so excited about the garden and loves to go and look at it! He and Thomas water it each night and are anxiously waiting for the first sign of life.
