Gardening 101

Future Garden

Gardening 101 for us...not for you. Don't be looking for any gardening tips here. We're just finding our way as we go here. We have had a couple of gardens before with limited success, but its spring and we have high hopes. Much later, when its 95 with 60% humidity and the weeds are popping up, I'll probably sit in the shade, laugh at myself, and wish I'd hadn't had such grand plans.
What I really want to do is can. Can tomatos, pasta sauce, salsa, and dilly beans. I will have to buy all my supplies and I will probably end up spending more than if I just purchased these items at the store, but its something I've always wanted to do. If I had a bucket list, canning would be on there somewhere.
I started some of my seeds today. Most of these are flowers, zinnas and cosmos but I also started some peppers for the vegtable garden.
