I’ve always wanted to be one of those people who grew their own veggies and had a garden. I don’t know why I’ve always thought that it would be so cool to be able to just go out back and pick fresh veggies from my own little garden. However I’ve never actually taken the time to start one . . . . until now!
A few weeks ago I finally decided to stop putting it off and do it. This also may be because “grow a garden” is also on my list of this to do by 30 and I am turning 30 in June!! (This 30 things to do by 30 is a whole post of it’s own for another day). So I set off to Home Depot to get my seeds, and also got some of those “Burpee” system planters, you know the kind where you can just plant the whole container into your outside garden when they sprout. I finished by getting some soil and set off home to start my garden!! I started with 3 varieties of peppers, roma tomatoes, onions, and squash.
Here’s my garden on Day 1:
I placed them in my front living room on the couch in front of a big window so that they get optimal light. I would check on them everyday and water them if they needed it. About a week went by and nothing!! Then finally I went to check on them on day 6 and sprouts had appeared!! I was so excited that I had to text a picture of my sprouts to my husband at work. Yes it was that exciting!!
