Planting cucumber seeds in her ‘trench’ 

There is little better than throwing open your back door, walking a few steps, picking a gigantic vine-ripened tomato, salting it up and letting the juice run down your arm just mere moments later.

For many summers we’ve been garden moochers–eating off of the hard work of others, that is. We’d hop in our car, drive a few miles and gladly pick to our hearts content from Grandma and Grandpa’s garden. Raspberries, cherries, carrots, potatoes, peas, pumpkins–just a few of the delicious goodies we’ve snagged from their garden over the years.

This year is momentous, as we’ve left the container garden behind, and have cultivated a real garden. Our own little patch of heaven–complete with tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, squash, beets, carrots, cucumbers, and beans.

Let the count down begin!
