I did it! I grew vegetables!

I’m not a green thumb, I get distracted easily, growing food is hard.  For years now I get a spring time urge to grow veggies, I work hard, I plant, I weed, I water, I forget, they die. When we lived in Collie, many many years ago, it seemed easy.  Our back yard had real …
