It's turning out to be a busy, busy, busy spring at out house. We have lots of stuff growing, a toddler, a baby and now a vegetable garden.


This week we headed to the Home Depot to pick out our organic vegetables and #DigIn.

As I told you last week, while I don't buy all of our produce organic, I do try to stay away from a lot of pesticides, especially if I am feeding it to my child. And I hope to make some baby food from our garden for baby number 2. But outside of that, home grown vegetables just seem to taste better and they give someone like me a sense of accomplishment. 

That pasta sauce you're eating, yeah I grew everything in it!


So the Senn family headed out to Home Depot last Friday armed with our $100 budget and a pretty good idea of what we wanted. 

The Home Depot has a variety of organic (and nonorganic) Bonnie Plants Each. My favorite feature is that the Bonnie Plants are in a completely biodegradable made by the Jiffy Company. You just peal off the lable and stick that plant in the soil. How easy is that? 

And The Home Depot  has an entire collection of Bonnie Plants Organics online. Each collection is part of a theme so each plant compliments the next. So simple! 


We looked a the tomatoes, spinach, herbs, zucchini, squash and peppers. And a sweet associate name Kori helped us with any questions we had. But I had already spent a lot of time on visiting the Garden Club and on The Home Depot website so I felt ready. 

We loaded up our cart with several varieties of tomatoes, some sweet bell peppers, and basil or course basil. In fact, we got everything on our wish list. 


And Jason knew exactly the right organic soil to pick up. It's made for in-ground vegetables and herbs. We also got a spray nozzle to help with our watering, but I hope to utilize our rain barrel as much as possible. We are working to get everything in the ground this weekend. 

Good thing I have this awesome (and pretty cute!) husband around to help, because I am way too pregnant and have killed way too many plants to do this on my own.
