If everyone else jumped off a bridge...

apparently I would too. I caved this weekend and built a raised bed for growing vegetables.

I didn't mean to! I went to the Natural Gardener with a girlfriend who had been planning to do it for a while, and I just got swept up in the excitement.

I planted 5 different kinds of Basil, 3 different kinds of Okra, 4 Malabar Spinach plants (2 green, 2 red), cantaloupe, little round zucchini, Black Beauty eggplant, and squash.

The staff at Natural Gardener were SUPER helpful, showed us the recommended planting/growing schedule for Austin and made suggestions for seed varieties. They made it seem pretty easy, so let's hope things work out and we're eating some great stuff in a few months!
