Well, here's the challenge.
Take the Utah gal, stick her in the Midwest, and see if she can still get her plants to grow! I am so so so grateful that we are living in a lovely home where there is enough space in the yard to have a veggie garden.
A real one. Last year we planted a real garden, but the land owners dog ate all of our plants before they really had a chance. No dogs this year! I planted some pansies and phlox in the front yard ,along with some lobelia. In the back yard is going to be the herb garden with basil and cilantro (yummy!), as well as the veggie garden. We hoping for a big crop of tomatoes, beans, carrots, and beets... probably some other yummy things, I'll let you know what we decide on. Here's hoping everything goes well this year!
