Lettuce Eat!

yay for homegrown food!

Saturday, Husband and I drove down to Farmer's Market (yes, that is it's actual name) in Birmingham for some cheap fresh produce. We got eggplant, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, red tomatoes, green tomatoes, onions, potatoes, squash, apples, bananas, and peaches and only spent about 30 bucks. it was fun walking around and picking produce at a place that's not a grocery store or super walmart (yuck).

Anyway, this post isn't about my love for all things Farmer's Market-eske. It's actually about our garden. Husband and I decided this is the year we'd stop talking about having a garden and actually have one.

First, we had to pick a place in the yard, decide what we were going to plant and how much or it. after all that was answered, it was time to begin the planting and maintenence phase.

currently everything is growing well, but these are the notables:
we have baby squash growing
the cucumbers are blossoming
the onions and potatoes are near harvest

AND that lovely head of lettuce at the top of the post was pulled and washed and eaten last night for dinner!

When Husband came in last night with it, I squealed. yes. pretty excited.

I'm sure as the season progresses, I'll write more about our garden and the method we used. so, be on the lookout for more vegatables on the page!

Yay...nice work, garden gal! I'm only doing container gardening this season, but I'm excited about my growing lettuce and fruiting tomato plants. There's just nothing like homegrown goodies!
