  1. Still a good show…reminds me of the “old days” back in the summer when you started out. Didn’t bother me then and doesn’t bother me know. Love to hear what you have to say!

  2. Hi Jack, this is a good explanation of how gardening is such a great investment. In our culture, we often expect quick results right away. People who have difficulty delaying gratification might find this makes garden more challenging, because it does take time to see the results. Soil building takes time and energy, but it is one of the most worthwhile prospects a person can do towards their own self-sufficiency.

    And besides the cost savings, the quality of your yard food is of tremendous value to your health, because produce loses nutritional value as more time passes. Not to mention the good feelings you get when you pick and eat your own food that you raised from seed or seedlings.

    I’m so inspired, I’m going to go plant some lettuce right now!
