My Boyfriend’s Mom’s fleshy Garden A fun way to achieve home sustainability and conservation is to grow your own vegetables. The first picture shows a corner of the backyard, taken care of by my boyfriend’s mom. It has Green onion, strawberries, kale, hyacinth bean, and leeks. There's something so satisfying about growing your own vegetables! I'm not much of a gardener, but I definitely want to learn more. I’ve started to grow my own green onion (second picture) and my experience made me excited to grow more food!
