I was in an accident 3 years ago. Because of my inability to make money I started growing food. Our garden was small at first and we added a little more every year. We now eat out of our garden all year long and we share a lot of extra with our neighbors. Our activity has also inspired some of our neighbors to start growing some of their own foods. I encourage people to grow their own foods because they will have better nutritional value, more flavor , and a sense of satisfaction in their life that they will acquire from the experience of gardening.
