When I started teaching my husband, I had no idea how to help people get over their fears about growing a garden.
The concept of a garden is new to me, and I’m learning as I go.
Growing vegetables is so natural to most of us that we don’t even think about it.
But for people who don’t want to grow a vegetable, we need to do it!
There’s a lot of research to back this up: Some studies show that if you do not want to plant a vegetable (which can take up to two years), then it’s probably not the right thing to do.
You can plant some seedlings in your backyard, but don’t expect them to grow into full-fledged plants.
So if you don’t like the idea of a vegetable garden, I would recommend you get a horse.
It’s a great way to get started.
