Tauni and I recently started buying organic and local. Yeah...we truly are THAT kind of yuppie.
Also, we decided to grow some of our own food, too. I'm going to keep track of how terribly this goes.
Here is what Day One looks like:
You'll just have to imagine what the watermelon seeds look like because I planted all of them, but if you look VERY closely, you can see all the other seeds. LOOK CLOSELY I SAID!
We are growing five things: Tomatoes, Carrots, Bok Choy, Corn, and Watermelon...
...but we are growing them two different ways to see which way works better. One way we are trying is inside these peat pellets....never thought I would ever use any kind of pellet...but here we are.
We are also trying to grow our food the "traditional" way, inside soil and pots. Notice how quickly our basil grew!
ok...ok...we bought pre-grown basil.
Wish me luck...I'm sure I'm going to mess this up!
