I’ve decided to try my hand at gardening. Well, other than lilies and other plants that don’t need much care! 🙂 Ow that I am home, I wanted to try growing some fruits and vegetables. I went this weekend and picked out some seeds to start planting and I couldn’t be more excited about it.
I got potatoes, a raspberry plant, onions, bell peppers (I forgot to get jalapeÃ±o peppers) tomatoes, spinach, cilantro, carrots….things that I actually eat. This way I thought I would be more excited about growing things that I like and would use. I hope it will be much more rewarding this way.
I can always try more things if these go well. We’ll see! But this seemed like a good start.
I planted them in this little tray and then added a cover to keep them toasty. I guess you just need to spray them with a squirt bottle. It actually works quite well.
My next task is to submit a plan for where the garden will be. We need to do that in the neighborhood. We are also planning to build a patio, so maybe we’ll send them in at the same time. The seeds aren’t quite ready to be outside anyway.
I’ll post some updates of my plants as they grow. Wish me luck! And send green thumb thoughts my way!
