The Early Bird

Yes, I plan on being an early bird this year.

I am planning on planting some hearty cool weather plants this week. 
 Lettuce, spinach and some swiss chard is in the works. 
 I have gathered some buckets, pots and window boxes to get a jump on my planting. 
 The key in the Chicago land area at this time of the year, is to keep the containers of plants close to the house to ward off late season frost.

With the insanely high cost of produce in the grocery store these days, I am looking forward to growing and eating some homegrown organic HEALTHY vegetables. 

A healthier, tastier menu will soon be served in the Zito house! :)
