Last Saturday was the beginning of planning and planting my first garden. My husband and Dad had worked together to build two boxes for me to use (see below picture). It felt like the possibilities to what I could grow were endless.
The next step was going to the store and buying plants. I knew that I wanted to try seeds with some of my vegetables, but I also wanted some starter plants that had already begun to grow. I had a list planned out in my head of all the different vegetables I wanted to plant as well. That list went out the window as soon as I found the gardening section at the store :) This is what I ended up bringing home with me:
I came home with entirely too much but I was so excited. Saturday we decided to dig in and get everything planted.
This is box number one and has all kinds of different veggies. I planted green bell peppers, red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers, banana peppers, cucumbers, and four tomato plants. Four! Two are cherry tomato plants and two are regular tomato plants.
I'm a newbie so I'm planning on going to the library to pick up some gardening books. If you have any particular recommendations on this subject (or just with gardening in general) feel free to share! I'm going to need all of the help that I can get! Hopefully, by the end of the summer I will be sharing all of the rewards of having a vegetable garden in pictures. Now, it is time to go water those plants!
