It sure makes the work and sweat worthwhile when you can sit and enjoy home grown veggies with a meal. Putting food away for the winter makes a person feel good too.

I have just started my home food garden. What a great way to live. Growing your own food. Now there is a man who can stand on his own two legs. Can I ask what you are growing? I am curious.

I love eatin from the garden! - When I was a kid I would stay with my pawpaw and granny at their house in western Kentucky...they always had a garden...and of course they put me to work. I loved to pick the new beans and snap-em, also diggin the taters for me...that was like diggin for treasure...I know it sounds nerdy but I miss it...I miss my pawpaw and those days sometimes when I was a kid.
Also nothin better than fresh corn bread, greens, new beans red potatoes and some okra on the table...fresh onions...they always ate from the garden...its the best way to go :) They used to do alot of cannin too...but that was soooo much work...didnt like it so much :(

hahaha Jim..you gotta start tellin em what my pawpaw used to say whenever my cousins and I would complain as kids about having to work in their huge garden he would look at us and say real serious like say "Well yall sure do like eatin it dont ya"?
you werent allowed to refuse at their house...when there was garden work, you got handed a spade and told to hoe..

Either way...we didnt complain too much...we enjoyed it..but sometimes we wanted to sleep in, but you had to get up and go to work..they had a HUGE garden...

Always had big, big gardens in Ohio, but I'm still struggling with how to garden in this Florida soil. Not much I miss about Ohio, but a good summer meal with my own harvest was always a treat.

Last year I had some good sweet corn.It'd not amounting to much this year,but I planted several varieties of squash,first time I've tried it and they've done very well. Also have tomatoes a few potatoes and onions and a couple varieties of snap beans.

Oh, I love it! lotta work though. My wife and I canned 14 quarts of beans so far. My daughter eats green onions with the dirt still on em. Starting to get tomatoes and cucumbers now. Been eating baked and buttered squash. Planted swiss chard first time this year and its really good-kind of a lettuce. The pumpkins are starting to vine. Never had much luck with corn though. Now I'm hungry.

I know what you mean! Now that I have my own home, I have a garden with tomatoes, peppers and lettuces-several varieties of each. I plan to expand next year : ).
