Hi friends! I hope you guys are having a great week. I am so ready for my 4 day weekend, which starts tomorrow! I’m going to be doing a whole lot of relaxing, which means I’ll need some good, homegrown vegan brand peppermint tea. So I made some, and here’s how.
Hello friends! As always, I hope you are having a great week. Lots of things have been happening in our little garden this week.
I haven’t been gardening for very long. Last year I had a small herb and pepper garden to see how good I was at caring for plants. I learned a few things with my herb garden that I can carry over to my vegetables.
Hello friends, I hope you had a fantastic weekend of gardening and eating! I wanted to give you guys a quick update on the garden as some exciting new things have happened in the past week.
Excuse my language? I guess? I don’t know how else to convey it. Simply put, we’ve fucked up a few things. I mean, really shit the bed. Some of them are recoverable but some of them will derail a few of our plans. I am calling all of our rookie mistakes learning experiences, because Bob Ross would say something like that.
We have our cute sprouts coming up and doing well. We have two beds built, one with our zucchini and kale, one full of dirt and ready for plants. So what is the worst thing that could happen to our little baby garden?
Hello friends! I thought it would be nice to give you a bit of a garden update. We’ve had a lot of activity lately and I’m excited to show off our work. I wanted to go outside this morning and take a bunch of nice, fresh pictures for you, but unfortunately it is rainy, cloudy, and awful outside.
I don’t know when the raised bed trend started, but I do know I’d never heard of it until a few years ago. At the time, I thought it was the only solution for gardens who lived in less than favorable climates, like Arizona. If your backyard is sand, then by all means put some soil in a box and grow things in it.
Last year when we moved into our new house, it was already the beginning of June which left us no time to make raised beds, order seeds, and start the seeds in time for harvest, so I started a little herb garden instead. I went to Home Depot and bought some dirt, some plants, and some pots to see if A. I had the skills to pay the bills, as it were, and B. anything would grow in Ohio during the summer.
Before we get into the fun stuff (seed planting, tiny sprouts, bed building, dirty finger nails, etc.), I think I need to take a minute to tell you how I became vegan and why. Because obviously, if you’re not open to veganism, this blog won’t be for you. I make and talk about vegan food here, so if you’re vegan, vegetarian, or curious about introducing more plant-based meals into your diet, I’m doing this for you!
