This was the year that I really wanted to grow a vegetable garden.
I tried in the past but the weeds took over.
THIS YEAR WE ARE
EATING FROM OUR GARDEN.
Our yard isn't big but we have plenty of room for raised beds.
We graveled the lawn in the back of the yard and added pots and two raised beds.
Beets, dill, carrots, and lots of lettuce are in the two beds.
The pots have the herbs; chives, rosmary, parsley, basil (lots of basil)
and of course tomatoes.
We decided to take away the back half of our lawn,
on the other side of the walk way
to make room for four more raised beds.
We planted two Pink Lady apple trees, broccoli, zucchini, red onions, strawberries, red peppers, and more lettuce.
And my roses...
love my roses!
After working in the garden, we really enjoy our patio,
looking at our salad for the next day.
But my favorite type of plants
are the Volunteers.
This little pansie grew all on it's own,
in the sidewalk that goes down to our fence.
