It’s that time of year again…garden season! Last weekend Eric spent several dirt filled hours turning over the soil, digging in compost, carefully planning a new and improved layout, setting up the drip system on our sprinkler timer, and putting seeds in the ground (I was busy watching the baby). This year we decided to plant bell peppers, lettuce, sweet peas, green beans, kale, spinach, cucumbers, crookneck squash, zucchini, tomatoes, pumpkins, cantelope, carrots and probably some others I have forgotten (surprises are always good).
In a few weeks the kale and lettuce will be ready to eat, and that means I can skip the produce aisle for the next several months. Since Addison is over 6 months old, now we can start making her fresh from the garden baby food. Now more than ever it makes me feel really good to know exactly where our veggies come from, and they aren’t covered in pesticide or nasty diseases.
Do you have a garden and what types of fruits/veggies do you like to grow?
