This spring, my awesome father-in-law (plus Reuben and my uncle Rod, with a bit of help from my sister-in-law Lily and myself) built a walled kitchen garden!
Now, I certainly do NOT have a green thumb, but this little garden is something that I can actually be proud of.
I planted comfrey (it’s much bigger now), lemon grass, strawberries, chocolate mint, chives and thyme, all transplanted from my mother-in-law’s garden.
The strawberries are nice and healthy, though the squirrels got to most of them before I did.
My dill is very healthy – can’t wait to make pickles with it this fall.
Rosemary, also transplanted from my mother-in-law’s garden.
My lettuce is also getting big – I need to cut and eat it before the rabbits discover it!
In my “big” garden I have also planted corn, potatoes, beans, carrots and cucumbers. The corn is above my knees now.
Even though I pretty much hate weeding, I’m excited about my garden this year. I can’t wait to harvest and put away what I’ve grown for the winter.
What about you? Are you keeping a garden this year? What are you growing?
