Gardening with teenagers
Also that night, they had a master gardener come and talk about gardening in our area. If you live in San Antonio, a great website is http://bexar-tx.tamu.edu/. I'm sure there are similar sites for whatever area you live in too.
Someday my family's opportunities to eat, may depend on my abilities to grow food. If my lawn is any indication of my green thumb, we will be very hungry and so I thought I 'd better learn. My daughter and I decided that we are going to plant a garden.
The last owners built these huge garden boxes, so that gave us a head start. We spent several hours weeding and breaking up the soil. Then we spent at least another hour at the nursery buying some supplies. We are going to grow tomatoes, beans, zucchini, cucumbers, squash, oregano and basil. Wish us luck!
