I hate weeding but I so love growing my own food, so I’m gonna do my best to see this project to completion and grow us a garden.

Today I bought (and much of these are more for trying out the growing process then trying out the food):

  • Pumpkins (2 kinds)
  • Snap beans
  • Zuccini
  • Lettuce
  • Orange watermelon (cool?!)
  • Snow peas
  • Corn (2 kinds)
  • Beets
  • Watermelon
  • Tomatoes (2 kinds)
  • White onions
  • Green peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower


  • Basil
  • Rosemary
  • Parsley
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • Chives

Some of these probably would have been better to get as starts, particularly the herbs and tomatos, but we’ll see. I hope to be in the house and have this garden for years so I gotta learn somehow since dad can’t teach me anymore. I did grow great tomatoes and onions on Pendleton against all odds, so there is hope.

I’m working on a garden layout and a supply list now, trying to keep costs as minimal as possible while providing a user friendly space because I will be short on time and needing the kids to help too!

I just realized I got no carrots! Dammit. I’ll pick those up too!
