Let the veggie garden begin

     The last few years, due to lack of energy, strength, and help, I’ve cut my veggie garden down to a few pots instead of the large plots I used to have in my yard.

     Yesterday, on my way home from the grocery store, due to road construction, I passed by one of my favorite little intercity nurseries so naturally, since I had no frozen foods, I stopped in. 

     She always has wonderful plants and in forty years, her plants have never failed me.  I bought three varieties of tomatoes, two eggplants, two varieties of peppers, and a bunch of Basil plants.  I would’ve bought more but she only takes cash or checks, and since I didn’t have my check book along, and what I bought nearly cleaned me out of cash, I had to stop.  Dang it.

     Today I have to go get more soil for my pots so I can finish planting what I bought…

     You all have a good one!

  1. If you want to start anything from seeds, please let me know. I have lots of stuff! All organic and heirloom. I’m excited about your gardening endeavors! It means you are feeling so much healthier and energetic, and that’s always a good thing. 🙂

    Yeah, it’s been a long road to recovery, still not back to my old self as yet, but getting there. I almost bought some Swiss chard but her chard plants looked a bit wilty today. Could be they needed water. *ears perk* Seeds?!!
