Hey Everybody, I am Franzi, 23 and live in Minnesota! I grew up on a hobby farm in Germany. I remember how my parents would take care of this giant vegetable garden. My mom pretty much grew everything that you can find in the vegetable and fruit isle. Back than as a child, I didn't want to pick weeds. It was more a burden than a blessing to grow all this GOOD food yourself. Children just can't appreciate it. I didn't know what organic costs, or what companies do to what they call"food" but is actually just salt, fat, sugar, which has been processed and shaped. Anyways, now that I understand the importance of good and healthy food, I miss this garden so much. We live in the suburbs now, so there is not too much room to grow all that stuff again, but I am determined to go back to the healthy ways I grew up with. It's so important to eat clean and healthy. I mean we have all heard it before: "How can you feel like a million bucks if you eat of the dollar menu!" I am excited to meet people and find friends here that will help me stay motivated and the other way around. :)
