A garden...

...this year marks my first attempt at gardening. My dad has always had an excellent garden (although last year he outsourced his gardening efforts to Ben & Kelly :), so I know he will be able to guide me through my fledgling season. I'm still unsure about what I will plant. I'm thinking zucchini, tomatoes, green beans, berries, & herbs. My grandma tells me that everyone likes to plant berries, but after a few years of digging through the thorns for the berries, many people give up on them. I figure I'll put in my few years and see if I tire of them myself. Nothing ventured, nothing gained right? That's my motto, anyways. I hope to get everything in the ground by the end of March. We'll see how I do. My raised beds will finally be home to a garden. WooHoo!



And lest you think I know nothing about getting things to grow...check out this weed in our backyard (Don't worry, it's gone now):

Oh Katie. I'd say you know lots about getting things to grow. I'm referring to that baby boy that is growing like a weed! Have fun.

I just planted our seeds to start indoors today! Gardens are fun huh?? I'm sure you'll do fantastic. This year I planted some flowers that are apparently edible...I'm excited to see how they taste! :)
