My mom and my dad’s wife are amazing flower gardeners, but I have not yet developed such a zeal. I think it’s because I have such high expectations of a perfect flower garden at my mom and dad’s homes that I’ll never be able to start one for myself. However, I find vegetable gardening to be very rewarding for me, especially since I LOVE to eat. Now that our new home has plenty of backyard space AND sunshine, I am excited to plant a vegetable garden. Thanks to my wonderful husband to take some of his precious time off to help build a bed!
