I put so much of myself into my gardens each spring and I get such a pay off! All the beautiful photos I am going to share with you will be in future posts of recipes. You can think of it as a preview of sorts!
Before you see the pics, please keep in mind my gardens are organic. You’ll probably see leaves that have been munched on. It happens. I can’t help that my garden tastes so good!
I’ve got mint, thyme, rosemary, oregano, and sage for herbs. I’ve also planted blackberries and blueberries. In a separate area I have Thai basil. It took over my herb garden last year earning it a place of its own in a pot. (I have control issues… lol)
In my vegetable garden I have planted cayenne peppers, jalapeno peppers, kale, swiss chard, spinach, collard greens, radishes, okra, lima beans, zucchini, and acorn squash. I have used every bit of space available in my vegetable garden to get all that in a 10×3 space. Sometimes I wish we lived in the country so I could have a huge garden and didn’t have to decide what to plant each year. I could plant everything I wanted every year. Alas, I love the city life too much. Well really I love the short drive to work and all the conveniences of city life.
So you should see posts on all the goodies I have growing soon!
