I don't like to brag, but last year we rocked out our garden.
Not one plant died before producing copious amount of veg. Our bowls runneth over. Literally, we grew more than we could pick / eat.
I think that mostly had to do with the fact that I was pregnant and wanted little to nothing to do with vegetables.
However, this year I am sans fetus and ready to chow down on some delicious and nutritious vegetables.
Bonus - Ina will start to eat solids soon and it is so rewarding to know that I can help grow some of her food.
On Sunday I invested an hour of precious weekend time to plant the garden.
In the mix we have:
- tomatoes - lots of different kinds
- green and red bell peppers
- butternut squash
- brussel sprouts
- sweet onions
(Now if I could only make those dead trees come back to life.)
I also started an herb pot with cilantro and sweet basil. I plan on adding a few more herbs soon -probably mint, rosemary, and thyme.
I really wanted to plant green onions, but couldn't find them anywhere. Maybe they only come in seeds?
What are you planting in your garden this year?
Breakfast - strawberry banana overnight oats
Lunch / snacks - leftover crockpot bolognese sauce with whole wheat pasta, orange, and hard boiled eggs
Snack - bran cereal with skim milk
Dinner- Dan made some amazing cilantro jalapeño lime turkey burgers with sweet potato fries and green beans
I had originally planned on not running yesterday, but last night was a rough night on the parent-o-meter and I needed to blow off some steam. So, I vented off 2.5 miles way past my bedtime. Running = therapy.
Thought for the day
