Homegrown Veggies! Or How My Garden Grows
Vegetables are good for you? Check. Fresh food is good for you? Check. Fresh vegetables grown in your own yard?! CHECK!
My thumb isnt’ the greenest, but it isn’t quite black. So this year I’m trying a reasonable sized (or so I thought) container veggie garden. I’ve got lots of yard, but the soil isn’t great and my dog runs over EVERYTHING. I’m growing: tomatoes (Cherokee purple and yellow pear), bell peppers (red and purple), hot peppers, peas, Brussels sprouts (just to see if it works), kale, spinach, lettuce and some herbs. I’m just going with a few of each so as to not totally overwhelm myself, and to see what grows well in this climate. Enough chatter, here are some pictures! Expect updates through out the season (Florida has a winter growing season, for those of you not in the area).
I promise next time there will be some pictures of the full tomato plant.
