I have to say that one of my greatest pleasures is watching my vegetable garden grow. I’ve been taking pictures every week since we planted it and it’s just such a miracle to me how quickly those tiny plants grow into yummy veggies for my family. When the time comes I will share with you my tips and tricks for preparing and preserving all those scrumptious morsels.
Two secrets that I have to share. We have drip irrigation on a timer in our vegetable garden. It makes sure that the plants are evenly watered at the roots. It’s also a life saver if you want to take a vacation during the summer. I also use a Tomato Food that I found on Pinterest. I use it when I plant my tomatoes. This is the third year that I’ve done it and it really makes them grow like crazy. It is 3 cups of compost, 1/2 cup of Epsom Salt, 1/2 cup of baking soda and 1/2 cup of powdered milk. I double the recipe for all of my plants.

Week Five (Yikes! I’m going to have to start canning soon)
