That’s right, we’re tackling one of the best topics we could possibly cover. Eggplant! Wait, so you’re not really excited about eggplant? Just give us a few minutes so we can convince you otherwise.

What kind of chicken does an eggplant come from? Get it? Because chickens come from eggs? Okay, so maybe we need to work on our humor a bit.

We’ll be honest. We don’t get why the vegetable is called that, anyway. There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger, neither apple nor pine in pineapple. The English language is strange that way.

There’s never a dill moment (see what we did there?) in Sherman Country because we know how to keep busy. We love everything that helps us to relax when we’re not working. We work hard and play even harder. It’s one of the reasons why we believe everyone needs a pole building. It offers a place to store all of our toys. And let’s be honest. Just because we grow up doesn’t mean we stop playing with toys. Those toys just become bigger and more expensive.

And one way to relax when we’re not playing with toys is to garden. And you bet that we’re growing eggplant in our gardens.


I Beg Your Garden?

Planting a garden is one of the most sustainable things you can do. You can grow fruits, vegetables, and herbs that will be available to you in your kitchen. Just think. You won’t have to pay the ridiculous prices at the grocery store or hit the farmer’s market bright and early. When you are cooking or baking, you just head behind your pole building to grab what you need from your garden.

A friend dug a hole in the garden and filled it with water. I think he meant well.

What you plant in your garden is entirely up to you. I happen to recommend eggplants. They’re extremely versatile. At the risk of sounding like Forrest Gump, you can make eggplant parmesan, ratatouille, baked eggplant, fried eggplant, roasted eggplant, eggplant soup, eggplant frittata, eggplant flatbread…

Of course, you can toss anything else into the garden that you want, too. Many people in Sherman Country choose mint and rosemary because they can help to keep away the bugs. That, and it will help your garden to small ahh-mazing.

Homer Simpson once said, “I’d be vegetarian if bacon grew on trees.” Oh, if only.

Now, if someone texts you to ask what you have in your garden, be careful.

You should never use this emoji 🍆 to text someone about eggplants. I have found out that it most certainly does not allow you to talk about the purple vegetable.

In the same breath, I feel it’s only right to talk about quality erections. Not an eggplant emoji moment, mind you. At Sherman Pole Buildings, we erect the finest pole barns around. These can be used as toy garages, barns, commercial buildings, and even residential properties.

When you build a pole building, it can easily be a site where you create a vegetable garden. Turn your barn into a restaurant, and you’ll have access to the freshest herbs in town. Add some animals to your barn, and you’ll have the freshest manure to fertilize your garden.

And just think. If you like eggplant, literally anything else you plant in the garden will taste even better.



Gardening is Still Therapy, Even If You Kill Everything

Gardening can be one of the most serene things you do. You play in the dirt, spend time watering, and even take photos of your prize veggies to post on social media. Imagine how many people would comment if you showed off massive eggplants, juicy tomatoes, and all sorts of other things. You’ll also have some incredible ingredients to bring into your kitchen. Who knows, you could have the makings for some prize-winning pasta sauce in no time.

Not everyone has a green thumb. I’ve known plenty of people with a black thumb. Everything they touch dies. It’s why I don’t allow certain friends to play in my garden anymore.

There are approximately 45 seconds between “I’ll make us an omelet” and “We’re having scrambled eggs.

It doesn’t matter what color your thumb is. Gardening is cathartic regardless of whether everything is growing or dying. You still get to play in the dirt, water the soil, and pick weeds. The only difference is whether you’re plucking fresh fruits and veggies from the vine or burying the vines in the hopes of starting over.

Spending a few minutes in your garden every day is a chance to relax and de-stress. You’ll be able to let go of your negative emotions. And if you feel like talking about your feelings, your plants are there to listen. The carbon dioxide from your words can actually help with photosynthesis. Plus, the vibration of sound will also help with growth. That means that plants can benefit from your therapy session just as much as you.


Absolutely Radishing!

Our quality erections are quite ravishing. Some would even say that they are radishing, especially when there’s a veggie garden in the nearby vicinity.

Its our belief that everyone should have the opportunity to relax and see the positive side of things, and yes we do that in several ways around Sherman Country. We garden, then we cook with the fresh ingredients that we get from our garden, and we play with our toys.

Billion dollar idea: A smoke alarm that shuts off, when you yell, “I’m just cooking!”

All of these things are better with a pole building.

Why, you might ask?

Well, first of all, we’re in the business of selling pole barns. It’s what we do at Sherman Pole Buildings. We believe that everyone’s lives will be enhanced when they have a dynamic steel building on their property.

Seriously, though, there’s another reason. A pole building is one of the most customizable buildings you can buy. They can house all of your outdoor toys. They can provide you with a residential property to raise your family. And they can be used to cook your favorite garden delights. What’s not to love about one of these barns?

Whether you have an idea for a garden yet or not, we know you’re interested in pole barns. Contact us today to let us talk to you about what we can create for you. We promise it will be better than eggplant.
