Prepping for Spring Projects at The Home Depot

We are gearing up at out house to get our organic vegetable garden together and boy am I psyched. So let's #DigIn.

I chose to take on the task of organic gardening because each year I try a vegetable garden and fail miserably. But, I am hoping to get a little help from the world’s largest garden community. Plus my husband built me a sweet raised bed garden last year and made me a rain barrel. 


Why organic vegetables? While I don't feel the need to buy 100 percent of our produce organic, I figure if I am going to all the effort of planting and raising a vegetable garden, I want it as healthy as possible. Especially since I plan on making baby food for baby number 2. 

Have you heard of the dirty dozen? It's supposed to be the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables: 

  • Peaches
  • Apples
  • Sweet Bell Peppers
  • Celery
  • Nectarines
  • Strawberries
  • Cherries
  • Pears
  • Grapes (Imported)
  • Spinach
  • Lettuce
  • Potatoes

I worry about pesticides in our food all the time and I try to buy the "dirty dozen" organic. But let's face it, that can get crazy expensive. So why not grow my own peppers and spinach? 

Last week I got my to do list ready to head to The Home Depot for everything we need for our raised vegetable garden.

I've got tomatoes, herbs, zucchini, squash, peppers and a whole lot more on my list. Plus I need lots of organic soil, organic gardening supplies and a new spray nozzle. 

I am so excited to just get in there and get started organic vegetable gardening.

Clearly my garden was neglected over the fall and winter. I will be posting a before and after photo once we get everything in place. 


And I know that The Home Depot has a wide variety of organic plants ready to be used in my garden. I am excited go to the store with Jason and pick out everything we need. But he might have to reel me in. 


Clearly the thought of going shopping has worn little bit out! 

I know our garden will be a process, and along the way I will be visiting the Garden Club on The Home Depot website for help organic gardening tips.
