...how does your garden grow?

Just in the nick of time, we’ve finally been able to start our garden!

The kids and I went on an expedition to Lowe’s yesterday to get soil and additional seeds. We were pleasantly surprised by their organic seed supply! So, after ringing up our supplies at Lowe’s, realizing that the baby had removed my wallet from my bag at home, driving back and forth to retrieve it, ringing the items up a second time, actually paying for it this time, and driving one final time home (after essential trips to Starbucks and Publix) – we got down to business!

We triple checked our references (for the record: Farmer’s Almanac, Month-by-Month Gardening in Florida, and Vegetable Gardening in Florida), triangulated their advice into a gardening plan, and located as many mostly-portable-and-temporary-planting-units as possible.

After much digging, mixing, planting, teaching, and learning…here is our itty bitty first garden.

Day One…

Our Motley Crew of Planting Vessels

Day Two…

The Nursery
