V is for Vegetables

I have had sooo much trouble getting this blog post written:( I went to the Chiropractor on Thursday and have been discombobulated ever since! Truly he helped because now I can turn over in bed without pain but we still have a little ways to go.

So I was trying to think about what to write about for the Letter V but had a real mental block. Then I decided on Vegetarian/Vegan because after all I am a Vegetarian and becoming Vegan. So that would work, right? But then I decided on Vegetables:) Vegetarians and Vegans eat Vegetables, right? Well, not only do we eat Vegetables but we grow them as well!

Hubby has been starting tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant and cabbage in the greenhouse. 

He also purchased some beautiful tomato plants and some onions plus some pretty flowers to pretty things up a bit!

Currently we have Sugar Snap Peas planted plus spinach, kale and Swiss Chard planted in the garden but the greenhouse plants will soon join them!

Next up, the Letter W!



  1. Lucky you...a greenhouse! Maybe next year we will get that project done. We've got our tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce, garlic, and carrots in our new raised beds. We're covering the tomatoes and peppers at night because it still has been a little chilly. We planted raspberries this week. We used to have them along our fence line but the spouse killed them off one year in an aggressive weed eradication program. I know we probably won't have a crop this year, but it's something to look forward to. I can't wait for fresh salad greens from the garden.

    1. We don't use the greenhouse as much as we should:( Oh, we have raspberries and they are amazing! We had some a few years ago that hubby got a little aggressive fertilizing...same result! We do love eating the fruit and vegetables fresh from the garden!

  2. That's quite a variety. My parents had a garden when I was growing up for extra vegetables, and gradually down through the years the garden became smaller- Dad particularly hated gardening. When they moved to their cottage country property, they were still growing a couple of things that were hard to find in stores, until one summer when the deer ate the entire crop. Dad said that was the last time he was going to plant any vegetable.

    1. Oh, that's not the half of what he will plant before it's said and done. He loves to garden:) So sorry for your parents' experience with the deer. We just noticed the deer have been nibbling on our rose bushes:(
