G Day

it's G-Day for us, Garden Day. Seeds planted,
April 11.
we decided to try a vegetable garden this spring.
our goal is modest: to give it a go, see what we can grow and who we can help: mainly our kids and friends. Fresh vegetables this summer. turn packets of seeds into good food.
we planted: lots of lettuce varieties: green salad bowl, black seeded simpson, buttercrunch and ruby, along with swiss chard and collard greens.
we also planted scarlet nantes carrots, french breakfast radish, squash, peas, lima beans, yellow beans, zucchina, and california wonder peppers. Beans and tomatoes (being started by
Dad) are to come.
I'll keep you updated on our progress: will these seeds sprout?

  1. Good luck! I once planted a vegetable garden...had one $100 salad and the rest was donated to the squirrels of Brookside.
