We spent the afternoon getting our organic vegetable and herb garden planted. This is something I've wanted to do since reading Animal Vegetable Miracle and I'm so happy everything is finally planted. It's so rewarding to see the fruits... err... I mean the vegetables of your labor.
We planted three different types of tomatoes, two types of bell peppers, two types of lettuce, spinach, jalapenos, snap peas, artichokes, celery, leeks, walla walla onions, basil, cilantro and parsley. I still want to add lemon-verbena and oregano.
Here is my yummy heirloom lettuce up close. Crossing my fingers that everything gets harvested. Normally I do a ton of research to make sure everything is perfect before I start a project but this time I just went for it. Oscar and I went to the nursery, bought what we like to eat and threw it in the ground. Here's to hopin'!
Even Ozzie joined in on the fun and helped water the veggies once everything was planted. Although I'm not quite sure why my husband has him dressed in pajama bottoms here but who really knows what goes on while Mommy is busy outside in the garden.
