We've wanted to have a nice garden since...forever. I remember that was something Bobby and I talked about very early in our relationship. We love the idea of growing our own healthy foods. There's something very satisfying about eating fruits and vegetables that you helped create.
After we bought our home, we planted apple and peach trees. We've had tomato plants through out the years, but we've never really had garden. We wanted to have one last year, but with all of the traveling we do, we were afraid our efforts would go to waste.
Last year we decided to grow our own potatoes. There are many methods of doing this, and our attempt pretty much failed because of our errors. While Bobby was searching online for ideas, he came across something like THIS. I'm sure that's not the same site, but it's close enough. Bobby and Brit built the potato box today at no charge to us! All of the wood that was used was scrap that Bobby brought home from work.
We've also ordered heirloom seeds for the outside garden as well as for a kitchen herb garden. We'll have tomatoes, onions, cucumbers (for slicing and pickling) okra, several different varieties of peppers, lettuce, beans, basil, parsley, cilantro and oregano. I'm sure I forgot a few:)
Come on Spring!
