Psalm 127:3-5

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!"

Our First Garden

Today Kyle and I got up on this beautiful spring Saturday morning and headed downtown to check out a little gardening/seed store we had been told about. Our intention was to buy plants there then head to Home Depot for dirt (much cheaper!). Well, as we pulled up to Bunton's Seeds, we realized there was a new little "hole in the wall" organic gardening store that had opened across the street. We decided to check it out and quickly fell in love with it. We ended up buying our plants and seeds there and happily came home with a variety of herbs and veggies.

We thoroughly enjoyed planting our little garden together today. We are still in our apartment complex so we did a small raised bed that our managers built when they made their own garden. I posted pictures on facebook of the whole process, but I wanted to post the videos here.

We planted: peppers, onions, cucumbers, lettuce, cilantro, basil, parsley, and dill.

yup, think I'll show up for dinner in about two months, haha :) And even though the little containers are biodegradable I wouldn't think you could plant in them because then the roots would have to penetrate that. It would probably work, just think it may stunt or slow things down a little. And nope, I didn't research that, just my thoughts :D Love the garden!!

Your garden looks great!! Yes, you can plant those containers, as they just decompose. Throw them in your compost pile if you have one b/c they're a good "brown" source. Missed seeing you at Mom's group but hope you're enjoying the conference!!
