It all started six years ago, when my husband and I moved our family from our tiny old house to a newer home. For many years, we loved our 1938 house and its little lot, but we were bursting at the seams. Our "new" 1970s ranch house provided breathing room and a much larger yard. At first it seemed huge, but soon I began enjoying the space for a few currant bushes and fruit trees.
Two years ago we attended the local community supported agriculture fair, where we learned that it would cost us several hundred dollars to purchase a share of vegetables from a local farmer. We decided we would use the money to start our own gardens, and that's where it all began.
