Picked from the Garden

Vegetables from the gardenI just wanted to share with you the herbs and veggies I picked from the garden for supper tonight. It was such a treat to wander in the garden and pick supper! I can’t wait for my garden to be producing masses of different kinds of vegetables and herbs – oh, like  sweet potatos, carrots, spinach, cauliflower, broccolli……. real health giving food!  But I am having difficulty with the actual styling of my back garden, so this will take some time. I also need the weather to cool down before I tackle a huge project like this! I’ll keep you posted. I know you gave me a great idea about putting together a story board – get a huge piece of cardboard and draw on it my garden layout – place on it cut-outs from magazines that I see and fancy, like water features, different styles that could work, etc! This will be my project for the week!! Thanks for that tip!

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.
