We also decided to give vegetables another go around this year. No hope of having a garden we sustain ourselves off of, but rather a lesson for the children in botany, science, and the simple fact that food comes from a place other than the grocery shelves. This year we have a modest plot -- two pepper plants, two tomato plants, four brussel sprout plants, some melon plants, and future plans to plant lettuce seeds. Already curious and eager about the plants, I hope it will instill a lifelong respect and taste for fresh vegetables. Our plants were purchased at a greenhouse with a coupon; $10 off a $20 or more purchase. Perfect! Stay tuned to see if the critters consume them first.
If they grow it, will they eat it? A brussel srpout takes hold in our garden.
