|imma hippie that grows garlic*|
We got a big ole snow dump on Tuesday and it's supposed to be in the high 40s this weekend. Sounds about right for Illinois. It's also Day Light Savings... whoot!!!! I'm ready to start wearing my flats!!!!
For a couple of years now, we've had a garden during the spring, summer and fall. You can read about J's ridiculously, brilliant idea for keeping the critters out here and here. In the past, I bought our seedlings from an organic grower. This year, I'm trying to grow them on my own. We are going to expand our garden this year. More on that later.
Because our garden is going to be bigger, I'm going hog wild. I bought SEVEN different veggie seeds (organic, of course). Last night, Ava and I planted the seeds in these itty bitty potting thingys (seed starters?). I'm not good with gardening terminology, just go with me. Thank you Target for selling this ingenious gardening stuff for dumb gardeners like me.
Target and I are totally besties... by the way, sorry Megan about the "no shopping at Target" thing. Can we have a redo? Starting say... Monday? I honestly forgot about our pact of not going to Heaven on Earth for a whole month.
I mapped it all out so I would know what was planted where. When we got them all planted, I felt like I was missing something. I bought so many veggies that I couldn't remember but it was kind of bugging me. Oh well.
EZ was nawing on the seed packets earlier in the night, after I pulled him off the counter THREE damn times. This morning, when I had a potty break, I found a packet of carrot seeds in the bathroom.
*In case you were wondering... so, I had this ziplock bag of cloves of garlic that I didn't use in time before they started to sprout. Truthfully, I had no idea they sprouted until I saw that one of them had a tiny, green penis. Naturally, I took to Google and holy hell, you can plant these little buggers and get MORE garlic. So. That's what I'm doing. This is just one clove, shoved into the dirt, pointy side up. I'm going to transplant it later because I don't think that pot will be big enough to see it grow completely. But I don't know. This is a wait and see process. Never grew garlic before!
