Planting Seedlings With My Gardening Buddy




A few seconds after these shots she got two fistfuls of mud…amazing how far a baby can reach while sitting!

We will be doing a lot of gardening together. My pregnant summer was a very…lazy?…year with regards to the garden. I miss it. I want to weed things, mulch things, trim things, and make it look pretty. I also want to enjoy being outside with my baby girl, watching things grow and sprout, and teach her to enjoy the taste of things fresh off the vine.

I have started my favorite seeds – Jalapenos! We’ll do those this year, along with Cayenne. Maybe we’ll make our own hot sauce! Red peppers and onions from seed also went into the pots this past weekend. New items on the menu: Spaghetti Squash, String Beans, and Radishes. I moved the Asparagus at the end of the summer so hopefully those roots all take. We are definitely going to do Snap Peas again, along with Beets, Carrots (I WILL get them to work like they did the first year), Pumpkins, maybe some Shallots, and good old Garlic. I’m going to do mixed lettuce greens in a big clay pot on the back deck though – the Romaine didn’t fare well again last year, and I think we’ll use it more if it’s accessible.

Now MELT you crazy snow! Can’t wait to get going on expanding the plot a couple feet towards the house!
