Finally, for the first time in four years, I have a garden that actually did something.
I’ve wanted to have a garden for ages, and as I implied, I’ve been trying for four years. I just couldn’t get anything to grow at my house. I’m not sure if it’s bad soil, varmints, or both (I know for sure there are varmints), but I couldn’t get it to stick.
For example, one of the onions I picked this year still had greens on top, but the actual onion bulb had been eaten off from underneath!
A family from church who had a farm when the 80-year-old grandparents were kids has some land that they plow up every year but never use it completely. They offered some space for me to try my garden. They’ve seen me struggle and wanted to help. So I took them up on it and planted four rows of onions, green beans, beets, chard, zucchini, yellow squash, watermelon, cantaloupe, and sunflower.
At least from my perspective, I’m really getting a bumper crop. We’ve got so much zucchini that I can’t even give it all away.
And to me, there’s nothing more tasty than a freshly-harvested onion!
So I had to do the only logical thing – I had to include as much of these delicious veggies as I could into my breakfasts.
