We've always been amateur gardeners. Christopher built us a raised bed as soon as we moved into this house, and we've grown a few different tomato plants and herbs over the summers. This year, we decided to expand a bit. He built another bed, and we're going to divide up the harvests a bit in order to get produce for a longer season. We've planted several more goodies this year, too. We started off with several organic plant seedlings, just to see if we get them to grow. So far, all but one sad tomato plant seem to be thriving! As the weather warms, we'll add more mature plants in, too. The window sill in Chris' office has given way to all sorts of sprouts - everything from cucumber to lavender to onions. Our green bean plants are already outside and producing huge leaves. I'm still learning, but we're having fun. My goal is to grow lettuce and kale into the winter, since we eat so much of it! Any tips?
