And it begins again

We spent around a hundred bucks at the Garden Center today. I planted green beans, yellow squash, zucchini, broccoli, butternut squash, purple kale, pickling cucumbers, rosemary and basil. I think that's it. Brendan got all the additional tomatoes his heart desired. They wont go into the ground until tomorrow, or next week.

This year the goal is to preserve and freeze as many things as possible. I have to commit to this in order to make the most of our investment, as well as to have organic veggies all winter long. I will be the blanching queen. We will have to invest in a food saver as well. I plan to track all the costs and compare our investment to the cost of store bought organic veggies. Good luck to us!
