How Does Your Garden Grow?

Ever since we moved out of an apartment, Aaron and I have talked about planting an edible garden. I definitely don’t have what you would call a green thumb. But today was the day we bit the bullet and gave it a shot. We figured we didn’t have anything to lose.

We headed over to the nursery this afternoon with a list of the supplies we would need and a rough idea of the veggies we wanted to give a try first.

We left with

  • 3 types of tomatoes – Roma, Cherry, and Heirloom
  • Poblano peppers
  • Summer squash
  • Tomatillos
  • Rosemary
  • Basil
  • Cilantro
We also grabbed some tomato cages, planting mix, a rake, plant food and some spray to keep the critters away without poisoning ourselves.
When we got home, we got to work prepping the soil
Laying netting down that will help keep weeds away.
And then planting the herbs and veggies.
We watered everything well and now are just keeping our fingers crossed. I am so excited to see our tomato plants grow as tall as me and to eat veggies we grew ourselves. Each tomato plant we bought cost $2. It is crazy to imagine spending $2 on a plant that will yield more tomatoes than we can eat. We spend at least $3 a week on tomatoes now. Keep your fingers crossed. I will be sure to update the progress!
