We had a garden when I was a young girl. So growing up, if we could produce it in our garden, that's what we ate. If any of you have tasted fruit/veggies from a garden compared to the store, you know the difference in the taste is significant. When I was planning my path to homeownership, I knew I needed to have a yard that was big enough to allow a garden. And since I have that and completely rising above procrastination, the first phase of my garden is complete.
