I can't believe it's been one year since my first blog post. A lot has happened in that year but unfortunately none of it includes growing a bounty of vegetables in my garden. I've had moderate successes, but to to put it into perspective, had there been a man-made or natural disaster that disrupted our food supply and left me to grow my own food, well, I would have starved by now. The fact of the matter is that growing vegetables from seeds is a lot harder than I imagined. Even with all the claims of "Guaranteed to Grow!!" on the many different type of seeds I've tried over the past year I have yet to really grow much. But all that aside, I can consider my first year of gardening as truly trial by error period in which I've acquired the rudimentary gardening knowledge I hope will allow for a more successful second year in the dirt.

A longer post filled with pictures and progress will soon follow....
