I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden…

But I planted a vegetable (and berry) garden today!  With help, of course.  I don’t know what put this bright idea into my head, given my history of growing dirt (especially on my multiple attempts at growing herbs), along with my great love for yardwork.  I went to a plant sale yesterday with a local grower, and got some tomatos, basil, thyme, lemon balm, and jalapenos.  Then Tina & I went to Home Depot today to get some new dirt, and I bought even more plants – some more (and bigger!) basil, sage, cilantro, cucumber, zucchini, and strawberries.  We’ll see how it goes.  Yea, I sometimes have a tendency to go a little overboard.

So, keep your fingers crossed.  Soon I hope to be eating homegrown salsas and salads and bruschettas!  Yum!
