Seeds germinating.  (them’s some brussel sprouts, beets, tomatoes, and cabbage are the first to greet me!)   Garden a work in progress.  We are working outside in 60+ degree weather!  YAY!   Flowers blooming. Life is good on bonita!  

How to start seeds indoors

March 11, 2013 | Gardening | Permalink

Starting seeds indoors has always seemed super overwhelming.  But,  I decided to make an attempt.  It’s much cheaper and hopefully I will be able to get the majority of my garden out of these seeds and some awesome plant variety.  We will see. Here are a few steps, that I had to look up, before starting your seeds. Great resource and super cool [...]

early outdoor gardening – side bed planted

March 8, 2013 | Gardening, What's growing? | Permalink

Yesterday was the best. We planted seeds for early harvest in our little side garden (our main garden is still under construction).  We planted  mostly leafy greens, but also onions, radishes, peas, carrots, and cabbage.  We planted them, right in the ground, and it was awesome!  I can’t believe that you can plant this early, [...]

Saturday was some serious yardworkage around here.  We decided to expand our garden and since our yard is 15 years overgrown it needs some attention.  Luckily I have a bro who is a magician with a “mini X” as he calls it.  He dug out like 5 evil weed trees, and grass, and bushes, and pretty [...]
