This iReport is part of an assignment:
From garden to table
Preaching what I practice
My sister, just like me, has decided that having her own kitchen garden is a healthy and inexpensive way of having easy access to nutritious and flavorful veggies and herbs, free of pesticides and other chemicals.
This week, while vacationing at her home, I spent a morning with my nieces planting organic seeds in a mini-greenhouse so in a few weeks they will have seedlings ready to be transplanted.
Besides the obvious future harvesting of delicious veggies and herbs, my sister and her husband will be able to teach my nieces about sustainability, responsibility and self-reliance.
