It is crazy to think that just a little over three months ago I was planting seeds in my garden, and today I am picking herbs and veggies for my family. Every time I harvest something from our garden I get such a rewarding feeling. By no means is a garden cheap, especially if it is your first one, but it is all worth it in the end! For the past week or two I have used something from my garden on a daily basis. I have made salsa, garlic green beans, BLT sandwiches, vinegar cucumber salad, baked jalapeno poppers, dill potatoes, rosemary potatoes, and more!
I can’t say that it has been a walk in the park – this gardening stuff can be tough. A few weeks ago I was watering the garden every night because we were in a drought, I found that pickle worms had invaded my cucumbers, and before that rabbits ate my green beans and corn. I put the fence back up around the corn and green beans and planted round #2. My green beans were eaten again, but the corn is still there.
This was the garden on March 3rd…
This is the garden now….
We are growing three types of tomatoes; beefsteak, roma, and grape tomatoes.
Guess what there are!? I bought green onions at the store for a recipe and then cut the ones I didn’t use down to the white part. I planted them and now I have an endless supply. They are so flavorful and I love using them in salsa and on roasted potatoes. I cut some off and then it just grows back!
Enjoy your weekend! My best friend from High School is here for the weekend and we are off to play in the sun.
