Mary, Mary Quite Contrary

I’m trying to help our family eat more clean, and also save a few cents where I can. One of the ways to do this is to have a garden. Oklahoma’s dirt is red clay so I’m doing a raised garden. This will be my second attempt (my first attempt was 2yrs ago and was ruined by a 100yr flood). 

Today I started growing cucumbers, squash, zucchini, strawberries, watermelon, tomatoes, potatoes, and onions. I’ll be adding lettuce and spinach and peppers is my hope. We also have a sizable blackberry patch that the kids enjoy. 

So today is day one. I used jiffy starter pods and seeds. I’ll let you know how it goes.
