Sometime in the next week, I will receive the seeds which will make up most of my garden this year. I have dabbled in growing vegetables for five years now, but this year marks the first time that I plan to not only eat fresh from my garden, but preserve as well.
On the other side of the country, there's Kelz. She has never gardened, never had the space or opportunity. But this year I have gotten her to start a garden.
Now, my ambitious seed order was $50.00. Hers? Almost two hundred! Either she's crazy or I'm lazy...
(Oh, my order? Carrots, beans, peas, lettuce, garlic, asparagus peas, mint, thyme, garlic, basil, and my beloved ground cherries. I will buy tomato and cucumber plants locally in the spring.)
