This will be the sight of my kitchen table for a while! Sunday we started our 2014 garden season by getting the seeds sowed indoors. We are lucky to live in the South where the garden season starts early. Last year we planted our seeds and seedlings outside St. Patrick’s Day weekend!
We started 8 varieties of tomatoes. Have I mentioned how much I love tomatoes fresh from the garden?! Sean now enjoys grape and cherry tomatoes too so I can count on him to help me eat them. Needless to say we have a ton (assuming a good year) and share so many. In the Columbia, SC area…stop by this summer!
Fresh herbs….I can’t wait to walk out my door and cut them for dinner.
We also started four varieties of peppers. What else, some cabbage, broccoli… The rest will be started directly in the garden come March, weather permitting.
What are your favorite garden goodies? It is hard for me to pick a favorite, but tops are tomatoes and lettuce. Come spring we eat TONS of salads and give away a lot of lettuce and spinach. Unfortunately, the tomatoes don’t come in until after the lettuce is gone. A tomato cucumber salad is common in our house during the summer though.
Here’s hoping to a successful garden this year, last year was horrible. We had asparagus, lettuce and melons but not much of anything else.
