Glorious Gardening

I wouldn't say that I am an expert gardener but I have definitely been bit by the gardening bug since I got married and this year I am just bursting at the seams to get my garden started. Lucky for us it is time to start planting some things here where we live so let the season begin. I have some seeds started indoors and we have planted potatoes and peas outside in our garden spot. We started a big compost bin last fall and have the most beautiful compost to put on our garden this spring. The bulbs I planted last fall are coming up and ahhhhh it is just awesome. I think it is one of the best feelings in the world to plant seeds and watch them grow. Here is the list of what we will be planting this year:
Tomatoes: cherry, beefmaster and early girl (I make a killer salsa so we need lots of tomatoes plus I can eat them by the handful)
Peppers: Jalapeno and bell

Here are our potatoes and peas (nothing up as of yet but they will come)

The beginnings of a beautiful tulip or daffodil.

My little cilantro sprouts
My indoor seeds: tomatoes, peppers, broccoli and cabbage. The peppers and cabbage are just barely starting to poke out.
My little garden marker standing valiantly in his place. I found these at Michaels Crafts in their under $5.00 section. I got a pack of 4 for $1.99. Seemed like a good deal to me and works much better than the empty seed packet stuck under a rock.

  1. I love gardening too. So you make a great salsa? I would love a good recipe. I love homemade salsa, and I just can't seem to get a goo recipe. Is yours a long time family secret? Can I bribe you to share it with me?

  2. A goo recipe...that is funny. I mean a good recipe.

  3. Homemade salsa sounds good!

    We started our indoor planting about a week ago. My oldest has loved watching them sprout and get bigger everyday. =)

  4. I'm jealous. I was going to start my garden this weekend but then got hit with strep throat. Don't worry...I won't breathe your way:)
