The Gardening Beginnings

a trip to the nursery...





Today we headed to a local nursery(buy local whenever possible) to purchase strawberry plants. We hope to have a green house by next year to start seeds.

We also found some Romaine lettuce and pepper plants that looked wonderful, so we will add those to the mix!

The kids got the strawberry plants in the ground this afternoon. (We are short 4 plants you'll notice in the picture) Tomorrow we will get the lettuce and carrot seeds in the ground.

Next month the tomatoes, bush beans, peppers, etc. will be planted.

Our Farmer's Market starts up May 23rd and we can't wait! We have plans to expand our offerings and promote organic gardening.
