Growing a Garden

After reading Animal, Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver I was intrigued to try and grow some vegetables and fruit this year. And to be on the frugal side I wanted to grow them from seeds. Well I soon discovered that we don't have enough sun light in our house to make this possible. So a dear friend who does have sunlight pouring into her house gave me a few of her plentiful seedlings. (thanks Leah!) I planted cucumbers, tomatoes, 4 different kinds of peppers, corn (random I know), potatoes and strawberries. And so far everything is going good. We've only eaten 2 banana peppers and a few strawberries but there are tomatoes ready to be baked by the sun on the vine. And I'm still unsure about the potatoes and how to know when they are ready. Live and learn, this is quite a wonderful experience.
