            My mom planted a vegetable garden over our recently buried dead cat. Is it gross to eat the vegatables?

            Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

            Our cat of twenty years died 7 months ago. We buried her approx 2 feet under ground in a cardboard shoe box. My mother planted a vegetable garden (squash, eggplant etc.) 14" away from the grave site. My mom has been serving my brother and I the vegetables every night. Is it gross or wrong to eat them?

              Vegetable Garden?

              Saturday, January 28th, 2012

              So my brown thumb and I are going for take 2 on growing our own vegetables.
              🙂
              I had a tiny bit of success last year and managed to grow some broccoli, a couple of zucchinis and 1 yellow squash.

              My issue is this:
              If my broccoli (or tomato or pepper) row is successful, I now have… what, maybe 2 weeks to eat 9 or so heads of broccoli before it goes bad?

              Is there anything I can do to enjoy the vegetables of my labor for longer? I could probably freeze broccoli (could I?), but I can’t freeze tomatoes.

              I work so hard, and I want to be able to enjoy the things I grow.
