Garden 2012 - edition one


Well, here goes another try at a garden in 2012. I'm debating whether or not to try tomatoes and peppers again (just because they've failed so miserably the last few years) and just make it an herb garden, but I just love homegrown tomatoes SO much! And tomatoes and peppers are what cost so much - organic, homegrown goodness. All to myself. Affordably.


The beginnings of basil.

The chives that keep coming back.

Garlic we planted in the fall. Already so big from this crazy, warm March weather!

Strawberries ... what's left of them. Maybe they'll grow and give me a juicy berry or two.

 What are your garden plans this year?

P.S. This week is a really busy one so I'm signing off until next week. See ya then!


  1. Nice work. I'm trying my hand at composting and I might make a raised bed for a garden. But, sad to say I won't be gardening anytime soon. This week it's just too cold. I'll have to wait until April - at the earliest.

  2. Check out square foot gardening. It would be perfect for your space, and I think you'd get great results. It's a type of raised bed gardening, so you don't have to worry about the type of soil you have in your yard- you start with the perfect mix. I also happen to know someone who builds boxes for it, though I bet you and/or J could do it pretty easily.
    We plan to start with two beds this year. So excited :)
