Over the weekend, while the sun interrupted the rain for a moment, the Mr. planted most of our Baker Creek seeds!
It has been a fun tradition to figure out what we will plant in our garden for the year based upon what did well the previous year, and our ever expanding recipes for veggies.
Seed catalogs are filled with such pretty edibles, I wish we owned our home so we could rip up the water sucking lawn and plant the whole darn yard with deliciousness!
This year we got 24 packets, thus far, and we haven’t even glanced at our Seed Savers Exchange catalog yet. We’re going to be, “sowing the seeds of love, seeds of love, sowing the seeds,” all growing season.
In the ground now is a new grapevine, and 3 blueberry bushes from the local nursery that isn’t certified organic but they do not treat; a ton of carrots, purple basil, different kinds of tomatoes, cilantro, peas, beets, zucchini, purple bell pepper, kale, and chard – just to name a few.
There is something so satisfying about heading to the garden to pick out ingredients for dinner or grabbing a mid day snack!
What are your favorite edible things to grow and why?
Moral of the story: Plant good seeds.
