Thrifty Gardening

Here are the beginnings of what I hope to be a beautiful vegetable garden. What you’ll find below are the seedlings of basil, tomato and green beans. Each of my children have one each variety which they are responsible for. Gardening is one of the topics that we are focusing on for our final term on the school year. As you will see, each seedling container is from recycled materials. I will post pictures periodically. This post was inspired by EarthMommy. Go and check out the garden that her and her daughter are working on here and here.

    I am so exicted about the prospects of having a vegatable garden. Everything has grown even more since these pictures.

    I will post new pictures next week. I can’t belive that alot of the plants in to picture have already outgrown their small starter pots.

    There’s nothing that can compare with the thrill of seeing that first green poke up through the dirt…it always amazes me, year after year! :o)

    I have been such a blog lurker lately! I read everyday, but I just haven’t had time to comment.

    I have dreams of a veggie garden this summer too. And I just read up on how to properly blanch and freeze a bunch of veggies too. C’mon Spring!

    Its so hard to imagine spring is just around the corner while all this snow is on the ground. Thanks for the reminder I better get my gardening plans together.
