I went out and bought seeds for our site on Friday. After spending 15 minutes looking at every type of vegetable available, I finally selected three. First, I got some "Blue Lake Stringless Garden Beans" because Eugene and I wanted something to climb this piece of metal that we found discarded in our lot (more pictures later) - hopefully it will provide solace for our future meditation space. We also have some ivy that should creep up the fence. Second, I got some Italian Sweet Basil…mmmm Italian. Last, I picked up some Okra just to spice things up a bit. All of these plants can apparently be sown directly into the soil outside – otherwise we’d have to wait 4-6 weeks. Any experienced gardeners who would advice against this, let me know.
