(Hey, I totally accidently published a draft version of this last night. Ignore me and my silly ways, please. This is the good stuff!)
Someone may have taken this whole “bigger, better, best” thing to heart when buying seeds this weekend. Last year, we had a small-ish garden, about 40 square feet. This year, we’re doubling that. Naturally.
It’s possible a woman at Menards (where seed packets were 40% off, so we cleaned up for about $11!) even called us mildly insane for considering buying two varieties of beets.
Here’s what we’re planting from seeds:
New Mexican Chilis
Haricots Verts (green beans, y'all!)
We’re also on the hunt for a rosemary bush.
Now, you may remember we also have big plans for the yard in terms of a new deck and paver patio. Well, we also got some seeds to pretty up those new spaces:
Blue Fescue Grass
We’re going to get some tall grasses, a peony bush and some azaleas to round out the gardens.
We like starting with seeds because it’s so dang cheap and you really can’t beat the feeling of seeing your food all the way from seeds to deliciousness. Are you a seed-starter or do you buy plants?
