Diggin’ in the dirt

January 15, 2007 at 12:26 am 2 comments

Today, J and I started what we hope will be an awesome garden. Our goal is to actually grow some of the food we eat so that we don’t have to battle the rotting produce at the nearby Kroger. And, I want to grow some pretty flowers, of course. We’re just hoping that our neighbors don’t find it suspicious that we’ve suddenly got plants and a grow light in the basement…

Ready to grow!

Here’s a list of what we hope to grow:

Vegetables:
Green Beans
Carrots
Cucumbers
Habanero Peppers
Green Peppers
Lettuce
Yellow Onions
Cherry Tomatoes
“Big Beef” Tomatoes
Garlic (we haven’t planted it yet, though)

Flowers:
Dahlia
Poppy
Cardinal Climber Vine
Morning Glory
Butterfly Flower
Chinese Lantern
Cupid’s Dart

In other news, we’ve got most of last week’s issues resolved – the car repair wasn’t too completely outrageous, Jason is becoming quite the plumber, and I’m coming to terms with cancellation of the OC (not that I agree with it).

    green thumb… where did you get that from? All plants do here is die.

    Are you sure you aren’t giving out too much information?

    Everything I grow dies. Jason, on the other hand, seems to have the magic touch.

    Pretty sure I haven’t given out too much info yet. Start worrying when 1. someone other than you actually reads the blog, or 2. I start giving out credit card numbers. The only people that can really find this site are those I give the address to, and I am quite difficult to find information on on the internet. (Google search my name and you won’t come up with much – you won’t even find this site).
