Eat your colors!

Okay, so maybe we didn't get to all of the colors today but hey, it is some of them ;) Orange, green, red, purple. That's a good start. What am I talking about? Well, our tomatoes did so well last spring/early summer that we decided we would get our green thumbs dirty again and try to grow some more veggies in our garden.

Paul and Jared prepped the soil and got the drip irrigation system set up. We thought we'd attempt using a soaker hose for watering the veggies. Then, just this morning, Jared and I ventured to The Home Depot and purchased 5 packets of veggies. Does that seem like a lot to you? Well, we've never done this before and everything sounded so cool to plant :D We chose to go with peas, carrots, mesclun lettuce blend, radishes and basil. We almost got spaghetti squash instead of basil but I think we missed our window to plant the squash. That just means a lot of cooking with basil for me :D

Jared and I planted the seeds after lunch and Paul got the drip irrigation running. I had Jared draw up some garden markers this afternoon and we glued/taped them on to some sticks and put them into the garden. Now, we are set! Hopefully something germinates and yields some yummy veggies! We'll see :)
