Gardening Love...

Spring in KC has been a little cooler than normal this year, so we are a little late in getting our garden planted. This past weekend we gave our existing garden a little face lift and extended it some. Here is what it looked like before we started our work:


After lots of cultivating...


we planted:
**2 cherry tomato plant varieties
**tomatilla's
**3 tomato plant varieties
**red peppers
**sweet banana peppers
**jalapeno's
**strawberries (these are back from last year and I can't wait)
**2 basil plants


We still have a few things we would like to add to the garden in the next few days, if the weather cooperates! I love being able to step out our backdoor and grab fresh vegetables for dinner.



To celebrate our hard work, we had some homemade salsa and chips with a beer! I will be sure to post some pictures when it is completed! Have you planted a garden this year? What are you planting? I would love to hear about it!

XOXO

I am so jealous of your garden! Wish you could ship me some fresh stuff. Love that smile you always do in your pictures xx

My "patio garden" this year has one beefsteak tomato plant, a vinca with pale pink flowers, two basils, an African violet (that has stopped blooming, sigh) and the aloe plant you two gave me. :) I'm hoping to add more--I'd love to have another rosemary plant, or some sage.--Dawn
