So let's be honest, my first attempt at planting my garden in the house didn't work. It was hideous, or at least it smelled really bad. I was so excited to start the plants before they could go into the ground but it all ended tragically.
Mostly I used manure that had been composted and miracle grow to water the plants with and I think that might have been too much. My real sin was covering the plants with a plastic tarp at night to help with the stink.
I know, what was I thinking, how much of a green horn can I be, how embarrassing for me and all that. Whatever. Live, learn and never invite animal waste products into your home again no matter how broken down they are.
Well I started again on Thursday and finished planting on Saturday, this time I just used potting soil and these great little peat containers that go right in the ground. But Camille, you might say, didn't you save yogurt containers for a whole year just to plant your garden. Yes, I did and I really can't talk about it. Gone, all gone.
Anyway, I am so excited that my little radishes are coming up after only a few days. Double Plus bonus, the kids haven't touched them and no more poop smell in my house! Hooray, I guess keeping it simple was the best plan. Thanks Dad for all of the good advice and the encouragement.
