Garden 2008
Originally uploaded by Carolina Victory Gardener

During the first quarter of 2008 it became evident to me that our country was in for some rough times. Gas prices were high and climbing higher and food prices were going along for the ride. Businesses were beginning to report heavy losses and unemployment was beginning to rise. I decided to be pro-active and plant a kitchen garden in an effort to off-set the cost of vegetables purchased in the grocery store, a Victory Garden of sorts. It just seemed to be a more responsible choice.

Even though it was already mid-May, I planted some things in my small 8 by 3 foot raised bed and committed to the organic method. Some things grew and some did not. I started looking for an efficient way to journal about the garden so that I would remember what worked and what did not. If others who garden in the South Carolina Piedmont find this blog helpful then that is an added bonus.

I am looking forward to planting my 2009 garden to see what lessons await!
