My own garden!
Monday, June 17, 2013
It's been a goal of mine these past few years to start my own garden, but I seem to have an excuse every year why it's just not a good time. So this year, I finally got it done. And let me tell you, after the initial work of building the raised bed and getting everything planted, it's been such an easy treat to have fresh herbs and veggies all the time! I LOVE it! Here's what I'm growing:
Basil (2 types)
Mint (in a pot so it doesn't take over)
Jack-o-Lantern Pumpkins (request from my son, and now taking over the garden - lol)
My herbs are ready and I've been cutting them so that I have them fresh for recipes - so fun! And my first strawberries are almost ready to eat.
So fun, a great way to be "green" and grow our own produce, and the kids dig it (no pun intended). Just another way we've found to make healthy fun!
(this was a few weeks ago when we first planted. Things are getting much bigger now!)
Hope everyone is having a fantastic Monday!
