VeganMofo: grow your own
I've always heard folks say that there's nothing more rewarding than eating food straight from your own garden. And talk about eating local! How about walking outside to pick your salad? So Ken and I decided to try this whole vegetable gardening thing out with some fall plants. We purchased some little plants at the beginning of August, and most of the plants have really taken off. It's exciting!
The romaine lettuce is looking tastier each day:
One rainbow chard plant is towering over it's little sibling:
The kale is doing good, though still suffering from a few worm bites:
This is the sad part. Our little spinach plant is pitiful. I don't think the little guy is gonna make it:
It's pretty fun to see such pretty, healthy food growing on our back porch. Well, except for the spinach. That's kinda sad. I hope we can keep the rest of them alive and well so we can put them in our stomachs soon!
