My husband and have been growing a little garden for the past several years. Our first cucumber plant that grew cute little cucumbers made us so proud. We called it our baby and posted it on social media like proud parents, then we ate it. What started as a home school project for my kids, that they now will have nothing to do with has turned into a way of life for my husband and I. I look forward to spring every year and plan out what I'm going to plant each year. I enjoy going to local plant sales at local nurseries as soon as the plants come in. I always take a friend or two out to Growers in Loganville which is now a tradition and based on the crowd, it is a tradition for a lot of Gwinnett County. We also have to make a trip or two to Creative Enterprises. I love supporting local growers and non-profits like Creative Enterprises. If you haven't been there it is a wonderful place. This organization is dedicated to assisting adults with disabilities and others with barriers to employment in maximizing their potential. They have multiple programs and services to help these adults develop skills to be as independent as possible. If you haven't been there to get your plants you really should visit. It really is a very special place.
Our garden is small but we love eating the results of our labor. There really is nothing more beloved
