Garden...sort of

My dad "scapes land" for a living (he's a landscaper) so whenever he visits, I take advantage of his knowledge and always get help with our yard/plant advice, etc.

Lately, I've been REALLY wanting to grow some stuff. Not just any Produce. Things I can cook with or things we will eat. I've learned how to save money on other things we need, but not produce.

So when Dad got here, I gave him my very noticeable "Daddy I love you, I need something" smile. Before the weekend was over, we'd gone to Home Depot and bought soil, seeds, plants, and pots! I'm so excited!!!!

Currently, I am growing:
  • tomatoes
  • cucumber
  • strawberries
  • watermelon
  • green beans
  • squash
  • lettuce
  • spinach
  • lavender
  • parsley
  • zucchini
  • mint
Here are a few pictures that Anthony took...

By the way, Dad is the one who picked up the organic seeds. I didn't even know seeds could be organic. :) But seriously...don't hate. You know you're going to want some of my organic veggies and herbs and smelly good stuff.

Hopefully your watermelon will turn out because I can never get it to grow!
