We’re trying our hand at growing some of our own vegetables this year since we’re out of the apartment and into a house with a yard. We bought tomato, pea, and lettuce starts and carrot, zucchini, and bell pepper seeds. I planted the seeds early last week and was rewarded with sprouts in the zucchini and carrot pots yesterday! It was very exciting :). The bell peppers haven’t come up yet; I’m not sure if they’ve failed or if they just have a longer germination period. Once the zucchinis get a little bigger, I’ll move them to where the other flowering veggies are – we don’t want bees right next to the door. Since carrots are root veggies, I put them right in the planter by the porch.
Do you garden? Let me know in the comments :).
Having a garden is so much fun! You are going to love it!
I’m excited for the teachable moments the plants will provide :). And for the fresher-than-fresh veggies!
