I have always wanted to try my hand at growing vegetables.
And as if by magic, but in truth thanks to the Herculean efforts of my family, a beautiful raised bed vegetable garden appeared in my backyard while I was off celebrating my 50th birthday with a friend!
So now to become a vegetable gardener! Yikes! No easy feat considering that previous to this, the sum total of my knowledge of agriculture resided in the very Midwestern saying about growing corn: “Knee High by the 4th of July”
Since I no longer live in the Midwest and I hope to grow more than corn, I’ve set my sights on moving Beyond “Knee High by the 4th of July”! So time to start climbing the learning curve. And how very steep I found it to be!
This blog will chronicle what I’m determined to think of as an experiment in vegetable gardening.
