The Progress of Tomato Plants and Zuchinni I Grew From Seeds.....Celebrate Your Own Garden, Not Somebody Else's !!!
One thing I've learned as a Home Gardener is to never compare your garden to your neighbors, or anybody else's on the inter-net for that matter. Your progress or lack thereof can never be measured by what somebody else did. This includes Barbra Kingsolver (whom I admire) and who actually journalized and wrote a book about her families year of growing, harvesting and canning their own food. It was an instant success. As other people around the internet chroniclize their gardens, it doesn't make much sense comparing. The fact that the home garden is catching on is reason enough to celebrate everybodies gardens.
