Growing my Own Fresh Organic Foods

My garden is growing quite well this year. I am having a bumper crop of Arugula, Romaine, carrots, and tomatoes. What I can’t eat, I will give away to healthy-lifestyle-eatingfriends and family. My mom normally shops at the Farmer’s Market and pays a premium for the organically grown produce, but this year, we worked together in the garden to grow the fresh, organic vegetables ourselves. It’s a lot of work keeping the wild rabbits and bugs from eating our crop. Our cat helped with the rabbits and ladybugs helped with the aphids, mites and whatnot. I think next year I will try adding  strawberries and cucumbers. Mom and I are also starting the compost this year, so hopefully we can save some money on fertilizer.
