We’ve embraced gardening as we live in the suburbs and have a yard now. Well, perhaps embraced is a little strong, but we’re certainly looking to grow our own veggies and enjoy the fruits of our labor. My husband and I both have great memories from planting and puttering with our Bubbie and Zadie in their vegetable and herb gardens. Just like we did, we would like for Sophia to learn where food comes from and witness something grow from a little seed to a seedling to a plant, a flowering plant, a fruit bearing plant and finally, delicious fruits. This weekend we purchased and planted some seedlings in our newly partitioned vegetable and herb garden. Daily dances to the rain and sunshine gods ensue to make sure ample amount of both helps our little seedlings grow tall and strong and shower us with lots of good eats. So we planted snap peas, tomatos, cucumbers (japanese), zucchini and pettypans, poblano peppers, mesclun lettuce, mustard greens, arugula and the following herbs: thyme, savory, marjoram, cilantro, parsely, chives, dill, rosemary, perilla, oregano, dill, sage and basil of course. Sophia is far too young to help now, but she was on her best behavior in her little stroller draped with a moscquito net which she found fascinating!
Honey, way to go and good luck!
