Yesterday in my Earth Day post, I posted that I was wanting to start a garden. Silly me though, I forgot that we already did kinda start.
(Left to right- lettuce, strawberries, cucumber/tomato, basil)
For Christmas this past year I got my mom a little basil kit that you grow in side on a window sill. We finally got around to planting it and have got a nice little basil plant going. Mercy loves helping to water it, so when I was out shopping the other week, I picked up another little kit. This one was specifially aimed towards kids (Disney's Cars themed) and came with cucumber and tomato seeds, along with a little plastic lid to make a little green house. Those things have been growing like their on steroids! Then today at our local farmers market my sister and picked up some veggie starters from a local organic farm. We got some strawberries and green leaf lettuce. Now we just need to get some planters so I can transplant them and move them out onto our deck. I'm also hoping to get green peppers, broccoli, onions, and maybe a few other things to grow to. I'm excited!
