Garden Update: Beds are planted

Now it's a garden. We bought a surprising amount of veggies and herbs on Friday night at Lowes, and we're still missing oregano, rosemary and pablano peppers not to mention seeds for peas, beans and carrots.

Our shopping list on Friday night that did get fulfilled was:
  • Tomatoes - Roma and Early girl
  • Peppers - New Mexico, JalapeƱo and Anaheim
  • Cucumbers
  • 1 zucchini, and only one
  • Sweet Basil
  • Cilantro
  • Italian Parsley
  • Petunias
  • Marigolds

I got the plants we did buy into the beds on Saturday morning and the soaker hose snaked through one bed and into the other. Still on the to do list is borrowing tomato cages from my father-in-law, setting up a trellis for the cucumbers and mulching around the plants.

I'll try to do some updates throughout the year to track how things are going, especially come July once there is produce to actually harvest and eat!
