First Year Garden.

This past year Joe & I decided to start making steps in the right direction in regards to our health and wellness. I’d always been open to more natural/alternative methods but never really took the plunge til then.

While Young Living has taken care of us very well in most of those areas to go natural, food is something we’ve decided to take on as well. There’s so many toxins, antibiotics, hormones, pesticide, etc in our food. It’s become a way of life that many of us, including myself didn’t and don’t realize is going to affect us in the long haul.

At the end of winter, I started searching for organic seeds, potting mix, fertilizer and substances to safeguard the plants from outside annoyances.

It’s definitely been a process, but we’re so happy with the direction it’s going in. We labeled the indoor herbs and spices but failed to label the outside ones.

While that being said, I have no idea what is where😂 but it will all come out in the wash. We started them from seeds after Kentucky weather gave us our last bit of winter at the end of April (indoor herbs and spices we started in March). We were super hesitant as to how everything would grow considering we didn’t start anything indoors as it called for to then transplant outside🤷🏽‍♀️always been a little bit of a rebel when it’s came to directions😂

Needless to say we should have kale, cucumbers, yellow squash, 8 different types of peppers (I’m excited most about the cayenne), 2 different types of onions, tomatoes, tomatillos and 10 different herbs and spices when it’s all said and done over the next few months.

I don’t recommend spending $79.99 on a box of wood that was a measly excuse for a raised bed, I should have returned ours but we decided not to deal with the hassle and keep it. You’re better off getting plywood from Lowe’s and making your own. Hence I didn’t put the link above.

I’ve come a long ways from the 21 year old who just moved in and planted 60 assorted hyacinth and tulip bulbs in the front yard (it was a 6X3 flower bed) calling for survival of the fittest among them😂😂😂

Seriously can’t wait to see how it all turns out😊

If you have any gardening tips, drop them below. It’s our first year doing this and I would love to hear from you guys🌿
