We feel really grateful that we live in a HOUSE with room for a garden. It seems like usually when you live abroad, you don't get to literally dig into the dirt and grow stuff. So, we're trying to take advantage of the opportunity. We got a ride to D2 (like Home Depot) and bought dirt, compost, plants and seeds. We're trying to make some seedlings work but we also bought some plants. Mostly we're focusing on things that are expensive here or hard to find. Basil and cilantro were musts but we also got 3 kinds of tomatoes, peppers, green beans, salad greens and more. So far everything's doing gang busters even though they're just in containers. Hopefully everything won't die when we're away in Bali for 3 weeks in August.
