The Growing Challenge #1

Melinda at Elements in Time has set up a challenge for gardeners to grow at least one new edible crop or plant this year, preferably from seed. Click on the button on the bottom right of this page to go to her site. Each Monday she will check up on participants and summarize the progress on her blog! Since I just joined and here it is a RAINY Saturday night, I cant see much happening in my yard in the next two days soooooo....I decided to order a few seeds and report on them:


I just know the kids will love growing this one!

I want to plant these on a large teepee for the girls to play in.

That was all the vegetable seeds I could find that I wanted, but I did get some great double poppies, Asclepias and nasturtiums. Because I do work at a nursery I get first crack at all the vegetable starts, seeds etc that we carry. Once spring gets into full swing I will find myself planting way more than I should as it is!

GOALS FOR THIS COMING WEEK: plant the fruit trees that are just heeled in, plant the blueberries that are in a bag on the front porch, weed the vegetable garden so I can begin repairs and prepare to have compost delivered. Wish me luck!

Where did you get those red yard long beans? I have been growing the green variety for years. Now I have a new want.
