First Humble Harvest
While the farmer's market on Tuesday may have been less than fruitful (see what I did there?) we had a little success from our home garden. Yesterday I was able to gather my first harvest! The girls were on hand to help. When I say help I mean Cordelia kind of helped and Elise helped herself to fistfuls of dirt. Most of my garden is still young, but I was able to gather mixed greens and tomatoes! The peas are still tiny, but as this season progresses we will be eating more and more from this garden of ours.
This year we have two raised beds with several different veggies. Additionally we have some container gardening going on with herbs, the biggest tomato plat I've ever grown, strawberries, and more. Next year we are thinking about making the entire lower portion of our yard (it is two levels) into a big enclosed garden.
What are you growing?
