We got our plants in this weekend

This weekend was spent getting our plants into the ground. Luckily, the weather cooperated. We are a little early but our next few weekends will be busy so we had to get them in as soon as we could.

We spent hours in the garden but it will be well worth it a few months from now when we have fresh vegetables. I would say that 85% of my plants are heirloom and/or organic. Like I said before, I am boycotting genetically modified seeds or plants. Most plants or seeds you buy are genetically modified and that's not cool.

I am on a push this summer to get away from as much processed and GM food as possible. It is tough since we eat out sometimes and I like convenience food but if we start doing a little at a time, I think we can do it.

The summer will be easier if our veggies come in because I will know my food is totally fresh and organic. We have also cut back our meat consumption.

They are baby steps but at least they are steps.


  1. That's a pretty good area you have set out for planting. It'll seem like only a week before you've got oodles of goodies for cooking!
