A few weeks ago we picked out some seeds. We are planting:
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Bell Peppers (the "surprise" packet with purple, red, orange, yellow, green, and white ones. Who knows what will sprout!)
- Cantaloupe (Daniel's idea. He is obsessed)
- Green beans
- Sweet Basil
- Blueberries and blackberries (Technically bushes. We won't actually see their fruit until next year =( Oh well!)
Here are all of our supplies:
Here is what we did:

Once we have kids, I think we will add more variety like carrots and peas and make our own baby food out of our own garden. That and cloth diapers? We are turning into total hippies.
Next week I will be starting a bread series, baking and reviewing several recipes. The base for this bread is so easy and the dough can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 weeks before baking. No kneading. You will love it!
