12 Amazing Raised Garden Beds

This is the year that I'm finally giving the green light to my vegetable garden. :)

Well, a bit of encouragement from my son was necessary for me to take action.
Yep, he really wanted it. He likes to cook, he likes to mix ingredients and try new herbs. Though I have to say, he's still a picky eater. :/

That's exactly another reason why I wanted to grow my own vegetables. It's a good way for him to try new things, and by growing them himself, he might be more tempted to try them and enjoy them. Crossing my fingers. ;)

In past years I've grown herbs in the comfort of my own kitchen, a little box on the window sill was all I dare to handle. They did OK, some plants did better than others, but overall I was happy with the experience.
