Growing Whole Foods: It's Garden Season!

What better way is there to eat healthy than to grow your own food?

I've fussed with a garden of some sort ever since I was a kid, and this spring is no exception.

Over the long Memorial Day weekend I added a few more goodies to my small garden and can't wait for the growing season to really get underway.

Do you plant a garden? What do you like to grow?

This year I opted for a few varieties of tomatoes, yellow-green bell peppers, cucumbers, acorn squash, cantaloupe and onions. I might still do a container garden of herbs and scope out a place for strawberries.

In addition to munching on fresh fruits and veggies throughout the summer, I simply love getting outside and playing in the dirt. There really is nothing better than soaking in the sun and fresh air after a long day behind a computer screen!

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!

  1. I am happy for your garden! I live in a townhouse that doesn't get enough sun. BUt when we buy a place, gardening will be my big priority.

    1. Thanks! Maybe you can try doing a few small potted items, like some herbs or a tomato plant? ~Angela

  2. We've tried some container gardening (as we don't have much of a yard at our condo) and have gotten a few tomatoes and green peppers from it.

    Of course, we would probably get more if we took better care of it, but.... :)

    1. I understand! I get all excited at the start of the season, and by the time the 100-degree days set in, I lose interest. It's tough to stay motivated when summer arrives! Hopefully this year I get a few goodies! ~Angela

  3. My house is under construction (thus the yard too!) so I'm stuck with container gardening this year. Tomatoes, cukes, zucchini, radish, lettuce & some herbs. Everything but my parsley has peeked up & thrives. Can't wait to eat some ORGANIC fresh veggies this summer!

  4. I've begun inter-planting herbs and vegetables among my regular garden. Strawberries as ground cover in a sunny spot. Flat-leaf parsley under the plum tree. I haven't planted tomatoes yet--it's been too chilly and rainy here in Seattle yet. Soon, though. Soon.
    Now acorn squash is something I haven't tried before and it's one of my faves. Hmm.

    1. What a fun idea! Just last night I thought about putting a bell pepper plant in a planter in the backyard, so the rabbits can't eat the plant at ground level. I haven't ventured out of my garden when growing edibles, but I think I might have to re-think that idea! Thanks for your comment! ~Angela
