Planting a Garden...

(one end of our garden)

We planted our garden this week. This is our second year of gardening since being married. Last year's garden was in pots and was a great experience. This year we're going a bit bigger and planing a larger variety of plants.

Gardening is a fun, family activity as well as frugal and healthy. Growing your own herbs and produce can save lots of money compared to buying it all in the store. Gardening your own food will allow you to know what is in it too. If you want to go natural, organic, and pesticide free, you can. That is what we will be doing for sure.

Here's what we're growing in our garden this year:
tomatoes (a few different varieties)
yellow squash
zucchini
bell pepper
cilantro
basil
parsley
strawberries

(zucchini)

We still plan to add a few more too:
cucumber
jalapeno
rosemary
mint

(squash)

We have several fruit trees to harvest too:
cherry
pear
apple
plum


I will post some photos of our herbs soon, and some of our flower garden, so stay tuned!!

how did your gardening in pots go? I've been thinking about trying bell peppers and zucchini....

Awww...thanks Rachel! It is not always easy, we have been planning it for a while and just didn't get to it before now! :-)

Snow White,
I really liked the pot gardening last year. It is easy to move around as you wish and less weeds too. We grew bell peppers last year and they did very well. We are doing our herbs in pots still this year too.
