Yesterday I was browsing through the nursery with a store credit burning a hole in my pocket when I stumbled upon vegetable seedlings. I always thought that you had to buy vegetable seeds and grow them from there. Super intimidating. Did you know that you could buy baby vegetable plants? Already growing plants. Who knew?
I'm not ready to try my hand at an entire vegetable garden. What if all of the veggies die and I'm out $200? Do gardens attract crazy bears? Perhaps a small container is the way to go.
Feeling motivated, I blew my entire store credit on a green beans, cucumbers, red peppers, red lettuce, salad blend and spicy pepper seedling. Some organic potting soil and a big pot rounded out the list.
After planting a few of the seedlings in my new, large pot I realized that I seriously underestimated how much space I would need. Not wanting to dig-up the lawn that I have spent endless hours trying to get it to grow, the only other logical spot was my front yard perennial garden.
Flowers and veggies living together in harmony. In might be strange, but I'm crossing my fingers for my little experiment to work
