Growing a Garden

Every day on my walk to and from work, I pass this house with the most incredible box gardens right in their front yard! They've got some beautiful artichoke plants growing and the biggest, most delicious looking bunches of kale that I've ever seen.

Inspired by the abundance of fresh produce in San Luis Obispo from community gardens to Farmer's Markets, I finally decided to give growing my own produce a shot. So here I am, documenting Part I of Growing a Garden: seed planting!

So far I've planted carrots, spring salad mix, zucchini, tomatoes, and bell peppers within my little 4'x4' box. Also hoping to add some kale to that mix and eventually some strawberries too :) It'll be interesting to see how much of a green thumb I really possess... I guess I'll just have to wait and see if any little green seedlings pop up in the next week or so (fingers crossed)!!
