I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a lousy gardener. This is mainly because I’m simply a plant killer. I don’t mean to be one, but I’m just clueless. In the past when we have had a garden, I have been a really good spectator. My husband is the cultivator and planter and worker bee in this endeavor.
BUT, I want to be different. I want to grow some of our own food. Maybe if I could get more than one tomato I could learn to can them. I’d like to do that. I’d like to learn some of the things that most don’t do anymore because it’s more convenient to drive to the grocery store. If I want to eat real food then having my own garden is probably a step in the right direction.
There is something else that I’m really excited about that’s coming up in February. I’m planning to attend this Fair, which will help me to learn some much-needed skills on my clean eating and living lifestyle. I’m actually going to attend this with a couple of my co-workers but I warned them I can only go so far in my hippie conversion. I self-titled myself a suburban hippie and my husband is a redneck hippie. That’s our story and we’re sticking to it, friends.
