Last week I planted my vegetable seeds in tiny peat pots and they are sprouting all over the place! Pole beans; snow peas; cucumbers; acorn squash; butternut squash; zucchini just popping up all over.
My DH has designed a 4 x 4 sq ft raised bed, purchased the wood, cut all the wood to the necessary length, lightly sanded it to remove the rough edges. I need to use a non-toxic paint or stain to protect the wood before it is assembled this weekend.
Today I transferred all my seedlings to large clay pots and those precious little sprouts soaked sun all day. The clay pots are arranged on DH's workbench in the backyard with a temporary fence (Penny dog's gated fence that folds up) to keep the birds out. Today we draped the enclosure with one of the paint tarps to protect the sprouts from the cold evening.
Saving money? Uh, not this time around. What with the soil (our yard yields no proper gardening soil), wood, peat pots, clay pots, and everything else. If there IS a crop, it will be hopefully a break even process.
One can find tons of gardening information under the Healthy Life Styles section of Spark.
What does this have to do with losing weight. Uh...I don't know. But hopefully I will be eating healthier....If I get any produce...Uh...if I only get a cucumber or zucchini, they will be VERY expensive pieces of produce. LOL.
If anyone still needs info regarding Shingles Vaccinations, you can find it on my previous blog. Places to call, all that.
