Our older garden in front of the patio has been planted with jalapeno and tomato. Most of the herbs survived the winter. A testament to the hardy stock of plant at our local nursery, Nelson Water Garden. They have the absolute best plants around. The herbs currently flourishing for their second season are lavender, curly parsley, thyme and rosemary. New to the garden is oregano and two types of basil planted in containers. I've also planted two containers with lettuce.
My husband also planted 4 tomatoes in other beds around the yard. I think we will be begging our neighbors to take tomatoes off our hands by mid-summer!
My shopping is going well also. I have stocked up on shampoo, laundry detergent and flour. I'm being diligent to use coupons and shopping sales for my 3-month supply. Because we spent money on our garden this month, we had less for my 3-month supply shopping. We know we will get a return on our investment throughout the summer. Next month I will have more money to stock up on canned goods and such.
