Beginnings of this years garden!

I have begun my garden for this year. By saying I've started, I mean that I have planted seeds that are now (mostly) little seedlings for plants that need a little more time going inside. Some I just sowed a couple of days ago so I have no sprouts yet.

If you want to follow the progress of my garden, check out my "social" garden here: Herbal & Heirloom I will be posting there about what I am doing in the garden and what all I am growing.

So far I have started peppers, tomatoes, cucumber, beans, a few different herbs, and I have planted my potatoes in their permanent containers and will keep adding soil as needed. I also started an apple tree from seed, so we will see how that goes. At this point it is doing quite well.

My sage is doing well in it's little spot out on the porch. I planted it last year, and it seems quite content. Other than adding a little coffee grounds and egg shells every now and then, and light watering, it has been thriving with pretty minimal help.

I am going to try to container grow a few things to see how well it goes. What exactly those plants will be I haven't determined yet. I might try to grow a few tomato plants in the large containers I have, but I want to companion plant them with some basil. I am not using any chemicals/pesticides and my garden will be all organic.
