This summer our family signed up for a garden plot through our township. It was a bargain. Six hundred square feet for just $10 for the year! Plus, it was already tilled for us. They might as well have just planted the seeds for us, and given us a garden. It sounded ridiculously easy.

We started planting seeds, and adding seedlings later in the season. I was visiting the garden almost every day. Watering, weeding, planting….more watering….. And then I went through a “what the HELL have I gotten myself into” phase.
I think it was because I would look around at everyone else’s garden and they all looked so beautiful. Ours seemed to be taking forever to grow. Mark would remind me that it wasn’t a race, but still! Look! They have the same exact amount of land and growing conditions that we have, and they’re sprouting tomatoes already for heaven’s sake!
Ain’t nothin’ like eatin’ lettuce right out of the garden!
