☼ Grow your own damn Food! ☼

. . . . . . . . . .
These weekly posts are to share the progress of our garden; sharing photos and our gardening experiments and will hopefully inspire you to grow your own garden too! :) 
. . . . . . . . . .

We started our starts (heehee) inside this week in our little indoor greenhouse. Since we have the huge sunroom at our new place it means they also get a ton of natural light--much better than our place last year! We started our tomatoes, peppers, and some collards. Instead of planting them in those wasteful breakable little plastic containers people usually use, we got our hands on these awesome biodegradable ones (again from my dad's DIG garden centre), so when we transplant them to the garden we don't disturb the roots either. Neat, huh?

Cory also planted some radishes directly outside in the first garden bed this week, and a few greens since we've had a pretty warm March this year, and since we have a greenhouse outside to get an early start. That's what else we did today actually; build the outdoor greenhouse. We have a layer of frost cover as well. For the greenhouse, we found some PVC piping and Cory got the plastic cover from his Uncle, so everything is recycled too! :) It should do the trick, there's so much sun exposure and the weather is warming up quickly. 

We did get the one surprise snow dump this week though too. I was actually snowed in, and then slushed in, since it snowed as much as it did and then melted right away! Crazy week. And now it's beautiful and warm and sunny again today… and they say Global Warming doesn't exist. ;p It was definitely a "wtf winter?!" moment. I mean… I loooove winter… 

Anyways… greenhouse up! We still have the second one to do and we still have to make the last bed and fix up the front ones. Always exciting! I can't wait to have fresh food to pick again! Gardening is so rewarding!

  1. I miss gardening! I moved out about a year ago and can't plant anything since I live in an apartment now. :( But I used to grow tomatoes, green peppers, and strawberries in my old garden. :)

    P.S: I've never experienced snow before. :o
