Save Money, Grow a Garden

No, really!

Poster by Alva Edwards.

Ross and I planted a winter garden a few weeks ago. Ours consists of mostly root vegetables, herbs and lettuces.

We planted kale, beets, onion sets, red lettuce, romaine lettuce, and spinach in our vegetable garden.

All of the pencil sized sprouts in the bottom picture are onions! We are going to have onions for days.

In our herb garden we planted two different kinds of oregano, rosemary, fennel and some kind of celery-parsley hybrid.

I'm particularly interested in the celery-parsley hybrid (front image on the right side), what I am I going to do with it?

We purchased all of the herbs and vegetables from The Natural Gardener, here in Austin. At the check out counter there is free information on planting each type of vegetable in this climate, written by their staff! I love that. Talk about keeping it local and southern hospitality! They also give you a punch card (just like you would get from a coffee shop) which leads to an eventual discount for being a frequent customer.

We'll see how this goes. Fingers crossed!
