In the summer of 2009, my family was assigned one small garden plot. Because we live in a family apartment on campus, my family has great opportunities to explore nature. I had always wished to have a garden of my own one day, so I felt like this was an excellent chance for me to practice how to plant and keep plants healthy.
However, for this family garden, most of the plants we have grown so far have been crops, not really flowers or plants for decoration. Because we missed many of the Korean vegetables we were accustomed to, we decided to grow them by ourselves, and we were very successful in doing so!
Unfortunately, I have few pictures of my garden for evidence. Instead, I would like to share information about Korean vegetables and food recipes if only to say that these veggies are yummy and healthy!! For the recipes, click the title of the food! Enjoy!!
