Today my niece, my daughter and I planted some vegetable seeds for our container garden, that we hope to start in a couple of weeks. Every year I say I'm going to do this, and this year we actually got it started. Now ~ wish me luck in getting them to grow!! My grandmother's green thumb I did not get, but I'm hoping with age and a little luck, I can do this!! One ~ I think a vegetable garden in containers will be gorgeous on our back deck, and give my nieces and my daughter a chance to see where the vegetables in the grocery store actually come from. When I was younger we had to help my dad in the garden and when I went to my cousins house I had to help them in the garden, something I never enjoyed!! I am now wanting to know how to can veggies, and learn more how to raise our own and have them through the winter through freezing and canning. We are also planting a large garden, but I really want a container garden on our back deck also. The way prices are going up in the grocery stores for fresh vegetables that usually rot within' a few days, I feel like this is something we need to take on!! Wish us luck and I will keep you informed of how our veggies grow!!
