Grow little baby plants! GROW!

I'm expanding the 3rd street garden this spring! We will be planting a wide variety of veggies, herbs, & flowers that will not only be awesomely fresh but will also cut our grocery bill drastically (hopefully!). I got this great deal on amazon for a very big variety of Organic Heirloom seeds for a very good price! It seems like way too many seeds for one garden, but you could share with other green thumbs or freeze them! Frozen seeds will stay active for years! "Freezing seeds does not harm them, and can greatly extend their lifespan if done properly." says Underwood Gardens  
Among our first round of seeds- carrots, some fancy type of lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, B-sprouts, 2 types of fancy radishes, lima beans (for my boo-not my favorite) and peas!
We're in zone 7-a so this is the perfect time to plant these types of seeds that can take the colder weather. Find what zone you're in HERE!
We'll be up-cycling a fallen fence in the yard to make planter boxes in the next few weeks so we have a nice reposition-able bed for the little seed babies. I'm not quite sure where the sun hits most in my yard so this will give me the option to move the plants so they can soak up the sun! 
I've also taken to hacking the plant world and growing new plants from old scraps! Whole Foods Market  has a great illustration of plants that can start new plants!

Here's my try at re-growing a pineapple! 

Here's my try at re-growing a pineapple! 

When regrowing a pineapple you can speed the process up a little by peeling away a good amount of the leaves. They naturally come off pretty easy and reveal little tiny arms that will become the roots of the new plant! I gave my pineapple a little plant food to make her feel satisfied :) In about 3-4 weeks I'll transplant her to a pot and wait for her to make more little pineapples! YAY FREE FOOD! What will your garden look like this year?!

NOW GET TO GROWING! :D
