I am a gardener at heart. I haven't had the inclination to do the great big veggie gardens like I had in my childhood and the first few years of married/home-owning life, but I still get immense satisfaction from watching seeds that I planted bear fruit. To me, it is one of the greatest acts of hope one can commit.
Though my vegetable garden this year has been less than impressive, my strawberries and rhubarb have done well, yielding a batch of jam each. And I'm looking forward to making apple chips in the oven when the apples ripen up.
Are you growing anything green? Tell me about your gardening adventures from this year!
