So for the past couple days I have been playing around with the idea if planting a small vegetable/kitchen garden this year. This would be a completely new experience for me. the only vegetable I have ever grown is tomatoes, and I consider tomatoes to be an every-man type of veggie. What I mean is, tomatoes seem to be the one vegetable that everyone can grow and a lot of people do grow them. So I don’t consider my tomato plants as gardening experience.
I’ve been doing a little bit of research, looking up zone hardiness and seed time lines. I didn’t even know what zone I’m in. haha That’s how ignorant I am on the subject of gardening. But I have become very interested. I do know that I will need to make a decision fairly soon, especially if I am going to start them from seeds. I live in West Virginia, U.S., and it seems like most of the veggies I want to grow need the seeds to be started in March.
The veggies that I am most interested in growing are tomatoes, onions, cabbage, lettuce, celery and peppers(sweet and hot). The ones I’m interested in, but don’t eat quite as much are cucumber, squash and zucchini.
I know it would be a lot of work, but I think it would be worth it in the long run. Especially the onions, I love onions and put them in everything, so money would be saved. I don’t want a huge garden, maybe a small-medium sized one. I need to do some more research before I make any decisions and go buy seeds. It was just an idea that I have been thinking about and building on. I just thought I would throw it out there. I’ll let you all know what I decide.
Any advice or thoughts would be much appreciated. 🙂
