Real Fine Food x Redenta's
BACKYARD ORGANIC GARDEN
I was too scared to start a backyard garden in the past.
My opposite-of-a-green thumb had me tricked that I couldn't do it!
This year, with the help of the amazing organic gardening center, Redenta's, I took the plunge.
If you have also been hesitant to grow your own food, I recommend just DIVING IN like I did.
It's exciting, exhilarating and oh so satisfying. Not to mention a valuable skill.
Oh, and hey - there is NOTHING more delicious or nutritious than organic veggies and herbs
pulled from your own backyard.
Every single step of my aboveground backyard vegetable garden is below.

Also in this bed: two kinds of potato (leafy stuff in middle tier), sweet onion, red atomic carrots, orange globe carrots, basil, cilantro, arugula, onion chives, edge floral will pop soon, orange jing okra will fill in a little later as will jalapeño and bell peppers!
I asked Kim at Redenta's for more detail on "thinning." On the back of seed packets, it generally advises to plant a few seeds in each hole and "thin to XX inches once sprouts appear. Kim let me know that is so the strongest plant is left to thrive.
