Welcome to the earliest kickoff of my garden yet. I guess the cloud of unemployment really does have a silver lining. I am able to start my garden indoors and even grow some new vegetables this year. The tomatoes are not around right now since I am getting those from a friend of mine. There are plenty of veggies this year including some surprises. Without further ado, here is...

I know, you're wondering what MCV stands for. Well, that's the surprise this year. MCV stands for Mysterious Chinese Vegetable. There are three of them. I can honestly say I have no idea what they are and the Chinese man that gave them to me didn't tell me. So, there we have it, welcome to the beginning of my garden this year.
