May 19th World Plant A Vegetable Garden Day

There are few things as rewarding as planting a garden and watching it grow. It’s sort of like having a child, except it grows faster and can’t give you hugs. There is just something about the feeling you get from watching a garden grow and you can actually reap rewards by eating what you grow and sharing it with others too. So you plant your garden hoping something will grow and then getting excited when those first few signs of life pop to the surface. We normally take pictures so we can share the growth with others, we feed it, water it and prune it… protect it bugs and animals and then… you eat it. There is something odd in all that. the day was created by Bob Matthews in 2019 of Rochester, NY.

How to celebrate – Plant your garden. Take pictures of your garden. Reap the rewards of your work.
