First Garden of the Year
Since I was 15yrs old, I’ve always lived in apartments.
Last year I was laid up on bedrest for practically an entire year (the pregnancy & cesarean section recovery), so I wasn’t really able to do much of anything.
This year Keith and I decided to work on the yard (it’s been neglected) and try our hands at a small herb/fruit/vegetable garden! He built a garden box with Daniel for me which is even more awesome!
I have a little basil patch and strawberry patch going on. I planted:
- 4 – basil
- 10 – strawberry
- 1 – thyme
- 1 – oregano
- 2 – cilantro
- 1 – lavender
- 2 – red bell pepper
- 1 – jalapeno pepper
- 1 – pink brandywine tomato
- 1 – cherry tomato
- 1 – spring peas
- 1 – zucchini
It’s hard too, I would LOVE to go crazy and take a HUGE part of the front AND back yards and turn them into a producing garden!
The only experience I have gardening is growing herbs in a pot, so this will be interesting to watch! Hopefully everything will produce abundantly! I would of course, appreciate ANY hints/tips/suggestions. As it is, I am fighting with my emotions towards the backyard which is 90% covered in confederate violets.
So here’s a bunch of random photos of what’s in our yard!
Lastly, I would appreciate any help in identifying this plant! Keith thinks it may be a wild raspberry plant.
