Similar to how Paul Wheaton has project labor and nest labor, there is a similar division of time with my internship in Longview, WA, where I am doing some gardening and renovating. Growing my own garden falls under nest labor (aka my own time), so, I have been mostly working on this early morning, late evening, and on the weekends. I got my starts and seeds from Eric's mom, and I'm really grateful for her!

These are some of the things I have planted. At the stakes, there are tomato plants.


These are some tiny sprouted jalapenos I planted into the ground.


I also planted some peppers.


Here's a close up of one of the tomato plants!


And these are more started plants that I have yet to get into the ground!


I also directly sowed a few varieties of squash and peas, because I like squash and would love for eating but also want it as ground cover, too! I'm hoping the direct seeded squash and peas do awesome!

This morning I planted some, I think, kale.


And then, I planted some onions!


This is what one section currently looks like of my garden!


At the moment, I think I will be happy if anything grows and bears fruit! Because it's pretty important that something becomes a harvest!
