garden 2011

three summers of marriage.  and three different garden plots.

of all three, this one is the largest...which also means it took the most work to get ready.  but after a lot of sweat, i finally got it planted this morning.  we're taking a low-key approach this year and hoping for the best.  i mostly used the seeds i had left over from last year, along with a few extra plants.  i got the strawberries from a friend (thanks keri!) back in april.  in addition to the strawberries, we've got basil, cilantro, dill, a green pepper, two varieties of carrots, radishes (just to space out the carrots...who actually eats radishes?!), three varieties of cucumbers, marigolds, beans, and a pumpkin.

the previous owners of our home put in this nifty little irrigation system...we'll see how it works for us.

i love gardening.  for some reason, turning over the dirt, adding a little water and some seeds is very therapeutic for me.  i'm sure it won't be perfectly weeded.  and who knows how much of it will actually produce, but for now...i'm just enjoying it.

  1. Well your dad is a farmer, I can see how you'd like gardening. Plus you are amazing at it! I am jealous of your garden! We definitely have the room but to do a garden here means you have to rabbit-proof it. Ugg! I can't wait to see it grow!
