So it’s my first real attempt at gardening. Last year I kinda kept herbs alive. But this year I’ve decided to put my good for nothing, heat hole of a porch to good use. Enter veggetable garden. Last Saturday I went over to a friend’s house and planted seeds. I’m so excited. Mr. Negative the music maker is worried that I’ll just kill everything but I don’t care I want to try and I’ve been reading up on container gardening. I am absolutely loving two books. The first is a good starter one You Grow Girl and the second The Bountiful Container is great for more specifics . And guess what I already have broccoli sprouts. Yup. I do. So here’s my list, what are you growing this year? Anything else I should add to the list?
Greens and varying varieties
Bell Peppers (regular and mini)
Corn (yeah we’ll see how that goes on the porch but Linda convinced me)
Potatoes (I still need to get seed potatoes)
Raspberries (these will take a couple years to fruit if I keep em alive long enough)
Tomatoes (many different kinds)
Other Squashes which I bought seeds for that tempted me in the market today
Snap Peas (I want these to work so bad, they’re so yummy and so freaking expensive in the market)
Beans (a couple kinds)
Herbs (cilantro, rosemary, sage, parseley, basil)
I think that’s all. Is there anything else I need? Oh I’ve got some packs of flower for beautification since I plan to go ultra cheap on containers.
