As I shared in another post recently, our famiy has just started a garden. It was M, the youngest child's idea, but the whole family has pitched in. We are planting various flowers around our front porch, but the real pride and joy of M's heart is our little vegetable garden in the back yard. We have peppers, tomatoes (I know, technically a fruit), corn, and onions. It's still in the beginning stages, but we are all thrilled at the prospect of growing some of our favorite vegetables.
Amazingly enough, just the fact that we're trying to grow our own veggies doesn't make them chemical free. So, we were concerned about finding organic plant food and organic soil, rather than using the normal chemical-loaded products. So many of the plant foods and soils that you find at the local lawn and garden store are not what you want your table foods "eating"! So, when I learned about Whitney Farms® recently, it was a real joy, although unfortunately too late to use for our garden this year. However, now that I know about it, this is what we will be using next year, when we plan to expand our garden.
