I also don’t like being outdoors. Or being too hot. Or being dirty. Or working too hard. Basically, I am your average girly-girl, who was just made to sit in the shade and sip iced tea.
Fortunately, this girly-girl is extremely frugal, and my dismay with produce prices really got the best of me. I thought to myself, “Why not have a garden for myself?” I immediately pictured myself bringing baskets of beautiful produce to our friends and family to share the bounty of my hard work. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be the neighbor that people can’t wait to see knock on their door with loads of yummy treats?
So…I did it! I overcame my fear of planting (and getting dirty) and planted myself a little vegetable garden. I managed to plant parsley, rosemary, sweet basil, cherry tomatoes, regular tomatoes and green peppers.
Don’t worry, I was not wearing these shoes….
But I was wearing this highly fashionable John Deere shirt. Why not get into the spirit, I say?
Above is our finished product and I couldn’t be more proud! I greeted my hubby at the door with the biggest smile he had ever seen. He gave me the strangest look and said, rather scared, “You have dirt on your face.”
