We have decided to step outside of our little box and try something new...and that something new is gardening. We (and when I say "we" I really mean "I") planted a little vegetable garden in the planter in our backyard. We planted acorn squash, tomatoes, lettuce, basil, parsley, oregano, thyme, green onions, cauliflower, and broccoli. So far so good on keeping everything alive :) It seems like black thumbs run in our family. Hopefully with the help of a timed drip system we can keep our little plants alive and be able to literally taste the fruits of our (and when I say "our" I mean "my") labor! Next up are some citrus trees and aloe vera plants that my stepmom is giving us soon!
