It has been like, a million years since I last wrote a blog, and I am so happy to be back! Recently, I have started a veggie garden. (Hence, the name Veggie Tales) I am just here to tell you everything that has happened so far. Firstly, it’s a raised bed garden, so it looks all neat and tidy. We built it last Friday, and just today filled it with plants, soil, etc. In the garden, I have a ghost pepper, a jalapeno, fennel, two basil plants, garden beans, lettuce, cucumbers, some sort of squash (Idk what kind it is), a patio tomato plant, okra, and spearmint. I’m pretty sure that’s all. We transplanted most of them, but some of them are started with seeds. Some of these plants aren’t even in season, so I’m crossing my fingers gets something grows. I’m new to this whole gardening thing, so if you have any tips, please let me know down below:) I while include a picture of it farther down as well.
So, at first we went to the local nursery. Of course, the first place I went was to the seeds, only to be told the plants I was considering growing were out of season. The lady directed us to the back where there were plants, we only bought two basil plants, and a fennel plant. We also ended up buying some cow manure (💩) and some cheap organic soil. We needed about 8 bags of soil to fill up the 4 foot x 4 foot bed. We got home and filled it up, then planted the fennel and basil. Next, we got back out to go to Lowe’s. We ended up with a monster pack of seeds (which included garden beans, cucumbers, some sort of squash, and lettuce). We ended up getting a ghost pepper plant, jalapeno plant, tomato and spearmint plant. Finally, we headed back home and planted them and watered them.
