I am SO excited about this y’all. And thank you all so much for the sweet comments on the weight loss post I truly appreciate it. And in the weight loss post I mentioned how I am addicted to vegetables and crave them ALL the time. And I also mentioned how I recently joined a produce co-op which I’m also excited about, but why not try our hand at growing a few vegetables right here in our own yard?! I know I probably can’t grow a large enough one to keep up with the demands of our household, but having some extra around would be awesome.
When I got asked if I wanted to try out some Miracle-Gro products it was a no-brainer since we were already talking about planting a garden anyway. I wanted to do it in March but time got away from us. Hopefully we will be able to still produce some veggies and herbs from now until the Fall, and then replant new veggies.
I ordered a raised garden bed from Sam’s for $40 and it was so easy to put together. Here’s a pic from their website.
We are going to have a BBQ and I will have our family get in on the fun too and plant some stuff. Lucky them! ;) Good thing my mom and sis are gardeners. :)
I have so much to learn about gardening so I love browsing everything getting ideas! I need all of the help I can get.
Now what I want to know from you all is what is your favorite thing to grow? What should I not do? Since I am in Texas and it will soon be very hot, I heard squash, zucchini, and okra would be good so they are on the list. What else would you recommend? I’ll also be using the Moisture Control Potting Mix which I’ve had good luck with before. I like easy ideas, so be gentle…:)
