First, here are some shots of our modest beginnings of a vegetable/herb garden. Currently housed in pots on our porch, but we tilled out the big veggie garden area in the corner of the yard last weekend. We just need to get some good soil and compost in there and put up a fence, arbor, and gate to keep out our 2-legged and 4-legged children. :) We've been adding week by week and we now have:
Rutgers Heirloom Tomatoes
Yellow Pear Heirloom Tomatoes
Roma Grape Tomatoes
Red and Yellow Sweet Peppers
Italian Flatleaf Parsley
2 Peach Trees
3 Apple Trees (Golden Delicious and Granny Smith)
and soon hoping to add Zucchini, Sage, Cilantro, Chives, Oregano, Broccoli, lettuces and Green Beans to the mix!
None of the veggies have ripened yet, but the herbs have been used A LOT in my cooking lately. The husband is completely sick of basil, so I am not allowed to put it on his food anymore!
