Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

  • Apr 12

    While watering the garden this morning, I noticed some sprouts that appeared. The green beans were actually above ground. Somewhat of a surprise to me as the package said germination is about 7-10 days. No complaints from me though. The sooner they grow means the sooner I eat them. Also in my herb garden, the oregano has sprouted a bit as well. Fresh herbs, Yummy! I better get some recipes together. Looks like it may be a good season. I’ll haves pics and videos up soon.

    Well, not exactly. But I do have a wise old uncle who used to call me a farmer all the time because I grew up in the country and did a lot of outdoors stuff like gardening. So I decided not to disappoint him and keep on planting! There are actually some people who don’t understand the concept of gardening. It is a lot of work and sometimes it doesn’t work out the way you planned. Take last year for instance, I decided I wanted to plant a vegetable garden. I started around June or July. Still sunny and bright. The thing I did not count on was the heat. It was a bit too hot to actually reap the rewards of all my hard work. So, with the price of food climbing ever so high, I decided once again to plant a veggie garden. I got a bit of an earlier start this year. I hope that the fruits of my labor will bring more to the table this time.

    Here is what the start of it looks like so far:
