Operation Garden

By: Operation Foodie

It's that time of year and I can not help being excited to get outside and play in the dirt!  Last year I was a little too ambitious and started my garden way too early, alas, it taught me patience, and I'm applying that lesson now. 

I've started my seedlings at home on my porch and am growing oregano, parsley, basil, thyme, pumpkins, heirloom tomatoes, squash, and garden beans!  I can happily report that they are growing strong and will hopefully be fruitful.  I'm also sharing a piece of my small yard with my good friends so that they can cultivate the earth as well.  It's a wonderful excuse to have friends over for harvesting parties and BBQ's!

I've also tried to plant some herbs here at my FN desk... as of now I still have 2 big pots of dirt.  Perhaps I'll give it another try next week.  It would be a shame to go all summer infront of this window without anything green to stare back at me.

What are you planting this year?
Cheers!
