Missing The Good Life.

Coming from the east coast, I had once lived at home where, as a child growing up into my adolecent life, I use to watch both, my mother and grandmother raise a garden. Now, I myself, have taking some time out to also, assist them in taking care of their gardens. To me, that was the best time of my life. I felt the closeness wtih both of them during that time. I can recall the many a times, when they both, would take the time to can what they grew. That way, there were always plenty of food during the winter time.

While liiving back home, I remembered the many a times, when I'd wake up at my grandmother's house and she would have many foods that she had grown out on the table which tasted so delicious. I knew that with the food, that she has grown were very healthy for us kids.

I myself, have grown up with eating the many of foods that was grown in the garden. Foods such as tomaotes, lettuce, onions, especially, the green garden onions, etc. How, I missed those good times. I wished, that I was at the point of being able to grow my own garden. I am currently, living in an apartment in which, is very difficult to do so. Oh, how I would love to have a place of my own where, I can just start a garden of my own and show my sons, just how important it is to have this kind of life to eat the very foods, that a person grows in their own yards.

Here I am, 49 years old. I have lost sync with mother nature and the opportunity that it gives one to grow their own garden, and to live off the land in which, they have before them. What I wouldn't give to go back to that life style.

As a mother of four son of my own, three of which, are living in the home with me while their brother, is in a group home due to extreme severe behaviors, I would love to show my sons, the new way of life with having to have a more healthier way of living through fresh foods. But, where do I start from?  How can I assist my sons whom have become picky on what they eat to become a more healthy eaters? Any and all suggestions would be recommended.

I am a mother of four young adults. One of which, lives in a group home. I am married and have been for the past soon to be 29 years. At least, the last count I had, I am still yet, married. My husband and I are currently, separated. I am currently, not working. I was working at a fast food place called Jack In The Box. I was working for the organization for the past 10 years as a cashier. Due to some medical issues, I had to step away from it and am now, looking for ways to work here in the home. I am originally, from West Virginia. I am the youngest of six children. I love to read, listen to music, writing, sports: volley ball, which, at the moment, I am unable to do so. I love to try and play soft ball. I like riding bikes. I love taking long walks. Love camping. All in all, I'm an out door of a person.

    Vote no 2. Nice to see you back Teresa and I enjoyed this blog. I often think I would like to grow my own food too but can't at present. There are some great recipes on this website that you could try out on your sons, that might help them to be less picky and more healthy! I myself love vegetable soups and stews, but it depends what kind of things your family usually eats. There are all kinds of things here: pasta, rice, curries, etc, so hopefully you can find something that suits.

    Thanks for the information. I will check into it and will have to definitely, need to do some more research on this site to do more blogs here. You'll also, be finding me on of horse site as well soon. So, with the three sites, I will be doing more writing on all of them and earning some form of living from them all.

I will also, be on the web site of horse, and of course, rolling without limits for sure. I guess, with all three of these sites, I can earn a decent living from them all, huh? I'll have to get back into the swing of things on these sites. Again, thanks.
