My name is Camya Graham. I am 11 years old. During Covid 19 quarantine, my auntie inspired me to watch videos on gardens. As a result I wanted to learn how to start one. I went to my aunt and asked if we could start a garden. It was a lot of hard work to wait for the vegetables to grow. We had to make sure the plants were growing properly, so we watered and pulled weeds daily.
Once the vegetables started to grow we begin eating them in salads, sandwiches,
burritos, soups, pizza and quesadilla. We also planted fruit, we enjoyed watermelon, black
berries, and honey melon.
A family friend, Mr. Enrie; along with my family helped with the garden process. The
main goals I wanted to accomplish was to save money while we had fun with our family and
friends. I refuse to allow anxiety, stress or distractions to keep me from having a successful
My family helped me when I was scared and feeling discouraged. I was nervous
because there were alot of bugs and flies. I am not a bug person. But that didn’t stop me I was
determined to grow a fine garden.
God helped me during the quarantine to stay focused and prayerful. God blessed
everyone with something special to do. Because of our commitment and dedication; we our
project was successful. We had a lot of tasty meals and snacks because we worked together.
In conclusion, if you plan on starting a garden we encourage you to do so. Believe in yourself and just know that with hard work, dedication, consistency, and prayer all things are possible.
