DIY Friday: A Garden of Veggies

This year, I decided, I will attempt to grow my own food. Maybe not all of it - probably not even a week's worth, but perhaps this will be the start (pun intended...see? Garden humor already!) of something big.

I started out with some organic seed starter mix, a plant tray, and an array of vegetable seeds...yes, from the Big Bad Box of nurseries, Home Depot (the shame, I know).

Zucchini, parsley, carrots, radishes, basil, yum! We mixed, planted, and covered right there on the kitchen floor, and then you-know-who made markers for each:

And then...


Are you planting anything this spring?


  1. Not yet. Last year, I planted eggplant in pots on the deck and they were so beautiful and delicious!

    I think with all I've got going on, I'll have to be satisfied with my new subscription to Full Circle Farm, with its twice monthly delivery of fruits and veggies. True confession: I put bananas (I'm allergic) and okra (no explanation needed) on my never deliver list.

  2. OH, I love those veggie boxes. We've thought about that. No okra? Too bad - I've had a pretty amazing okra curry!

  3. Yay! I love spring and starting seeds. I've planted nothing this spring, but I'm enjoying all the crocuses I planted last fall and looking forward to tulips and hyacinths. I love this time of year :). Happy gardening!
