Since 2007 I have been stiving to improve my health by growing and eating my own fresh veggies in my back yard. One year I would like to eat entirely on what I can row and preserve from my garden for 12 months. Life has it's ups and downs, but I have had some very postitive downs since 2007. My weight is down 40 pounds, and I have not been dieting. Healthy food is more satisfaying, and gardening is very good exercise.
