New Beginnings

A Day of firsts today!
And I planted my first veggies in the greenhouse too! I promise to preserve, protect and defend my veggies from all pests.... both foreign and domestic!

Hi, weve been reading each others blog here and there and wondered if you would like to link me. I have yours......

Good luck for 2009, I hope you have success with your growing experiences this year.

Monica - these are some shallots I grew last year and managed to save.
Goldmember - please do link! I have been meaning to reorganize my bloglist and will certainly add you to mine.

Your shallots look great, by the way. :)

Thanks for a timely reminder - I have not grown shallots before and want to give them a go. I do hope that your pledge is successful.

Oh the shallots look snug as a bug in a rug ;) Doesn't everything seem as it should be now, with something started in dirt!
