I went to a local market to get my veggies to plant and some flowers. It is so much cheaper there, I got a flat of veggies for $9 that is about 48 plants (I think). These are plants that are already started and growing well. I got several different tomato plants because I want to freeze a lot of tomatoes this year for winter cooking.
I also got squash which I don't really eat but thought I would give it a try. I got an eggplant, never had it so will give that one a whirl too. I bought peppers, and some onions to cook with and freeze. I got two more blueberry bushes to plant. I love those! And lots of other stuff. My family are not veggies eaters so I will be growing, freezing and disguising a lot of my veggies in the foods we eat. I have been reading bunches about baking, cooking and hiding veggies.
Next year I would like to expand out and but I am going to try to keep things a little simpler for myself this year. This summer/Fall, I will build up my lasagna planting areas and next spring have a little easier time planting, as well as planning during the winter for my areas.
I am home, still sick and coughing but I want to go get some air and get started...the only problem the looming clouds, and thunder storms rolling my way. So I guess the planting will wait until tomorrow and the bedroom cleaning is going to happen today. Everyone is still sick but we got to keep moving even if it is a little at a time. This flu is hitting everyone hard this year.
