Farm Boy Benefits
When I started dating David I learned that he was a farm boy and that his parents had a good-sized garden up on their land. David also has a decent-sized garden in his back yard...it probably takes up one third of the entire yard. Last year we had a lot of corn and quite a few green beans. I asked him to grow some tomato plants for me, but they just didn't do very well. He also had beets and potatoes last year, but I don't like beets and the potatoes were rather "ho hum" for whatever reason. Oh yes, and we can't forget the cayenne peppers; I still have crushed red pepper flakes from last year!
But, this year...this gardening thing is getting pretty fabulous already! I just want to share a few of our tasty reapings. These are the green beans and tomatoes I found in the garden night before last.
