After a long and busy week-end of big deadlines and decisions, the pace hasn't slowed down very much around here, as my family and I are getting ready to move into our very first home. In fact we will be getting the keys in less than 3 days, and we are incredibly excited but also knee-deep in packing our rented apartment.
This is only the first piece of exciting news that I alluded to in my previous post and it's definitely a big step. I have only lived in apartments so far and I can't wait to experience everything that comes with living in a house.
I realize that buying a house further away from the city can potentially be a bigger burden on our planet due to the long commute and other such things, but I truly think that you can be environmentally friendly in the suburbs too. One step in that direction and something that I'm really looking forward to is planting our own little organic vegetable garden.
In fact, we have already started a few plants from seeds - we've got pots filled with tomatoes of all kinds, jalapeno peppers, and some herbs that include basil, parsley and dill. We still have to plant cucumbers, radishes, carrots and some green salad, but those will go straight into the ground come next week.
I can't wait until we get yummy, healthy vegetables from our own backyard!
