|Some of the garden goodies|
Here are some yummy veggies from my brother Zachs garden. I must mention my dad and him had a friendly competition of whose garden would be better. My Dad used seeds from the local feed store and Zach ordered a organic box of seeds online, I'm not sure how they're organic but they claimed the box of seeds were not genetically engineered like most seeds you buy. My Dad, a avid food gardener, claimed Zach was a buffoon for spending money on "organic" seeds and a rivalry was born. I have to say both gardens are pretty nice looking and I enjoy reaping the benefits of both; however, Zach is the winner in my eyes (sorry Dad). Zach's seed box provided so many exquisite treats like heirloom tomatoes, while my dads garden is all beets. I would say they are both skilled gardeners but Zach's variety and overall hippy flare (ie his garden has kale and leeks) win him best in show. I guess it's sort of generational, Zach took a risk and grew things that we don't usually plant and my Dad stuck to what he knows, beans and beets. Our generation is a less afraid to be different!
Cheers and I hope everyone can enjoy a fresh tomato on sandwich, because it is seriously unmatched by market products! You go green thumb people!
