Organic Gardening is Hard But Worth It!
Organic gardening was harder than we though it would be. Using no synthetic fertilizers and using no chemical pesticides was a daily battle with bugs, critters, and the natural elements. We lost many plants along the way, some to bugs eating the plants leaves and fruit. But at long last, finally a harvest to be really proud of! Our first zucchini squash! We had two zucchinis squashes that were growing great, but lost them to blossom rot. So we were feeling a little defeated. However, we've been watching the other squash and in the last few days, it grew so big so quickly! I can wait to cook up this beauty, not sure what to make yet. To know that we didn't use any chemicals to grow this plant is going to make this even more tasty! What should we make? Suggestions are welcomed.
