It's good to get dirty!

Thursday, May 15, 2008

I finally got our veggie garden planted last week and can hardly wait for all the lovely fresh veggies! I grow Organic if at all possible. I hate using any chemicals and only do as a last resort. I had to use a bit of sevin dust on my beans last year. I've still got a row about 4-5 ft long with room to plant and am hoping to find some Japanese Eggplant or something that doesn't require a lot of room to grow. So far we have Potatoes, Big Boy and Roma tomato, Carnival Mix Bell Peppers, Jalepenos, Green Beans, Sweet Corn and Cantelope. I have radish and green onion seeds and they can go in last after the corn and beans sprout. I make the most out of ever inch of my garden space. I was stunned and pleased at how many calories I burned during the 2 hrs I spent gardening. emoticon

Update: I love gardening because it's so rewarding. Not only do I get to enjoy the fresh produce and flowers but I can also say "I did this".
