A little over a month ago, John and I decided to plant a vegetable garden. Since neither of us had ever planted our own veggies before, I dug into the research. First, I found this really great article, the ASPCA’s Guide to Pet-Safe Gardening. Ultimately, we decided to do an organic garden to be both pet- and environmentally-friendly.
Despite all of our research, I have to say, we still don’t entirely know what we’re doing, but luckily for us, this has been the rainiest month ever!
We planted three different types of peppers, cucumbers, bok choy, and in separate containers tomatoes and cherry tomatoes. Due to the unruliness of the bok choy, we actually had our first harvest today and we’re cooking it up tonight, though I don’t know what we’re going to do with the huge quantities of bok choy. I did find a dog food recipe that utilizes bok choy, so we’ll see how the boys like that!!
