Garden Boxes

How does your garden grow?

Well, we have no idea. It feels like a grand experiment to me!
There are seeds for lettuce and peas in there. We have to wait 2 weeks to see anything. I can't WAIT to see if this works. It feels like such a miracle to me that from those tiny seeds, plants will grow, and produce things that we can actually eat! Crazy! I hope it works!

Oh, and for those of you who were wondering, we did our garden boxes based on Square Foot Gardening. They recommend 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 vermiculite (It's the little white dots you see in the soil by the roots when you buy plants), and 1/3 compost. We didn't do exactly those ratios, but we have those three things in there. I had no clue what any of those things were before today!

Very cool, I'm totally interested in gardening this year but hesitate to tear up the lawn (lots of work), etc. I may have to call you to see how it goes! (and to get ideas...)
