Gardening 101

To say that I'm not a gardener is a terrible understatement.  I have always wanted to grow vegetables and generally tend to outside plants and have never had much luck keeping anything alive.
Scott's school has a gardening teacher that helps build gardens for families as a side business.  Sign me up.
The coolest part is that she builds the soil from scratch.  She calls it soil lasagna; layers of leaves, seaweed, mulch, manure, compost.  She is so knowledgable about soil health and micro biomes.  I was so excited learning how to grow some super healthy veggies.

So we started with just one bed and we will see how we do and hopefully add more in the future.

We have kale, lettuce, zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell pepper and strawberries happening here.  Fingers crossed for some yummy produce soon!

And luckily for us our garden was planted just in time to celebrate World Naked Gardening Day!

Happy gardening!
