All about gardening.
I spent most of the winter reading Gardening for Dummies, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Vegetable Gardening, various gardening forums, planned and re-planned my garden layout on Gardeners.com and many other things after getting a bug up my ass for some reason about gardening. Over the course of several weeks, I bought a ton of self-watering containers and ordered seeds in the middle of December.
I tried to start all these plants inside; I had big grandiose ideas involving way more vegetables than I could ever cook...
Yeah, I started too early. And I discovered the hard way that you should never plant basil and rosemary together. But it's finally March. And I can finally really start to plant things that will go outside and grow and make lots of food! I'm never going to have to go grocery shopping ever again.
Ok, I know that's not true, but still. I'm super excited.
Last week I planted summer squash, cucumbers, glacier tomatoes, black cherry tomatoes, bush green beans, bush wax beans, ground cherry and....corn.... in those little jiffy planters. (I know right? Why did I put corn in the jiffy planters? Why am I planting corn? I don't know. I was caught up in the moment) I put the plastic piece over top of it, stuck it under a window on a table, and placed a desk lamp on a timer over it.
In 5 days, almost everything had sprouted!
I'm a master gardener.
Today, I transplanted them.
And this weekend, Bryan and I are tearing up the front yard (just a little bit) and putting in a raised bed, and I'm gonna plant onions, potatoes, and maybe some of the other cold season crops.

I amuse myself. But to be fair, those are all my real nails, just with the acrylic stuff on them.
