And so we begin...

Ok - so we've been "playing" at gardening for over nine years now.  Now that the sequester has gone into effect and we will experience a 25% net reduction in income due to furloughs, it is time to get serious about producing as much of our own food as possible.  Better late than never.  Hopefully, keeping this blog about our gardening efforts will serve to keep us accountable throughout the season.

This past weekend we started seeds of  lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, artichokes, lavender, sage, oregano, and broccoli.  Hubby is building a cold frame so we can get some of the early spring veggies off to a good start.

The garden is in shambles...but the rosemary, sage, thyme, and lavenear which was planted last season has survived the winter and the fall broccoli (which I neglected to pull up) is showing signs of growing some early new buds.  It will be interesting to see if we can harvest anything from our "has been" broccoli plants.

It's a gray, rainy day, but I will try to get a picture of the "garden" -although it has been so neglected, it hardly qualifies for the title.
