How Does Your Garden Grow?

By 86'n It on Apr 15, 2012

No Silver Bells here, just lots of veggies and herbs.

It might be a tad early to plant in this area, but we've had a very warm spring and the next month is INSANE for us (bbq fest #2, birthday party, Indy half marathon, NYC,...).

We used a mix of small starter plants and Asheville's own Sow True Seeds (open-pollinated, non-hybrid, & GMO-free). Here's is what we planted:


Marc also planted tomatoes and snap peas on the vine. We have some rosemary that is going in the "rock garden" area too.


Franca got in on the garden action in a big way. Well, until she discovered that her wheelbarrow could also be a foot bath. I grew up helping my mom with our garden and I can't wait to share that with Franca. (Oh, who am I kidding, I'm really excited to teach/make someone else to weed!)

In other news, I cut myself bangs. Scary with curly hair right? I really like them. If I'm feeling brave, I might post some pics on facebook tomorrow. Go on up to the FB link up there and "like" 86n' It to see them.

Have a great week!
