Jeff looked at me yesterday and said, "Do you want to put in a vegetable garden?"
It was like he forgot I was my Grandma Kienow's granddaughter and Uncle Bob's niece..."YES!!!"
Our only problem was measuring our enthusiasm against our time and effort...
2-2x8 green treated 16 footers
Assorted screws, saws, drills, and workbenches
15 40-lb bags of topsoil (it was red, not black, but still topsoil)
6 wheelbarrow of composted dirt from our backyard pile
3 wheelbarrows of clay (regular dirt down here)
2 Celebrity Tomatoes
2 Better Boy Tomatoes
1 Red Pepper
1 Green Pepper
1 Jalepenos Plant (I am sensing salsa...)
Green beans from seed
Green leafy lettuce from seed
Basil from seed
Oregano from seed
Cilantro from seed
Rosemary from seed
And I'm so happy!
Jeff and I definitely stopped and smelled the gardenias on the way in after our crazy day. I wish I could bottle them up and sniff year round. (Wait, maybe that's already been done in a perfume. If anyone has suggestions, I'll take them.)
