Munchkin and I planted a lot of our garden last night. I figured since it was to be in the 80s for the rest of the week, we’d be okay with the frost date. Well, I planted and he dug up worms and made a collection of helicopter seeds. What did we plant? Roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, rosemary, cilantro, beans, zucchini, basil, lettuce (planted a few weeks ago), peppers, hot peppers, carrots, eggplant. I still need to get in the flowers and the cucumber. I just love to see the progress the plants make every day, and it pains me to see it grow and have to wait for its yummy deliciousness.
I planted a ton this year because I have been slightly obsessed with the idea of canning, so I am hoping to capture some of that yummy goodness in the form of pickles, salsa, tomato sauce, jams, jellies, in addition to the usual muffins. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!
