I’m trying to start a vegetable garden this year. I’ve made a new compost area (should be usable in a few months) and i’m starting some stuff from seed. So far I have basil, romaine lettuce, eggplant, cabbage, snap peas, brussel sprouts, chamomile, california poppies, and a blueberry bush. I want to start growing more and spending more time in my garden. I want to grow more for my free-roaming tortoise; he deserves fresh sprouts and things to graze on. I hope by spring and summer, I’ll have a thriving garden and lots of fresh veggies, fruits and beans to share with friends
