Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I grew up gardening and come from a long line of farmers. As an adult, I began to appreciate how grounded I am in life when I'm gardening. In the last 2 years, my sister has begun to garden with me, which allows us to grow more and share the work. it's also bonding time for us and an escape from our otherwise hectic lives. We have become increasingly concerned about the foods our family eats and by growing it , we know for certain what they are eating. In addition, I just plain LOVE it. My grandfather once told me, "gardening isn't about what you get out of it; it's about what you learn while you're growing it." It's never the same year after year and I love the challenges it brings and what I learn about myself and nature as I garden along.
