When I started planning my early release from work I started calling around to the greenhouses in my area to see if anyone had any non-gmo plants. Generally the answer was no. Really? How come their seeds are non-gmo but the plants are not? My co-worker told me to call Bookcliff Gardens. Thanks Cathy! They are the best plants. Big, beautiful and non-gmo.
Don’t you just love Spring? After my eventful trip to the greenhouse I spent the afternoon planting my vegetables and playing in the dirt. It was such a fun afternoon. Anyone that knew me as a child would think I had lost my mind. I hated to get dirty and despised pulling weeds FYI I still hate pulling weeds but, I have found I love dirt. It is therapeutic to make something grow or keep it alive. Sometimes I have a hard time with the keeping it alive part.
I planted tomatoes about 6 different varieties, peppers bell, cayenne, jalapeno, and one habanero plant. I also planted chamomile and parsley and one cucumber plant. I only got one cucumber plant because the greenhouse that I went to was out of cucumber plants except for just a couple of pickling cucumber plants.. I have a cucumber addiction so I will settle for any kind I can get and maybe I will learn to make pickles this year.
I want to be able to grow my own plants from seeds and have them flourish and prosper, however; I need help. Either plant earlier, get a greenhouse, just give up the idea. What do you think I should do? The hubs wants a greenhouse, have you seen the prices? Or the construction?
