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.
"Build houses and live in them, plant gardens and eat their produce."
YAY on your garden! I love those raised beds! We do a small garden but it's just enough for us to piddle in, freeze a little, and share with our daughters. We both grew up having acres and acres of garden to tend too, work in, freeze, can and sell. Now, we simply enjoy the little gardening we do. But lord have mercy with the price of groceries I might need to clear my pine trees I've have for years and think about doing gardening on a larger scale. Happy end of June sweet lady.

You are a wonderful gardener. I wish I could do as well. Especially with the price of food these days. I want to garden, but my health just isn't good enough this year. I would love to come visit you and enjoy your great food. I'll bet it tastes better than anything you can buy too.ReplyDelete
I like your backyard garden! And wow, your roses look so happy!ReplyDelete
I've never seen a "tidier" garden". Impressive!ReplyDelete
Wow! I love what you've done. It looks so good. I hope you have an abundant harvest. Also, your roses are gorgeous. Jeremiah 29 is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible. So much hope in the verses we read there. Thanks for sharing 29:5. Have a great 4th!ReplyDelete
Hi Christine! I see you have commented on my blog but I don't see a comment! : )Gah...ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the sweet comment! I love your garden, we've been trying hard to garden too but it's so very hot here we're having a time of it. It sounds like you have some wonderful things growing there! So great!
Let me know if I'm missing something on my blog, it's so strange that I do not see your comment.
I appreciate you! : )
