My First Garden

One of my dreams for the longest time, has been to plant a garden. I always thought that it would take so much time and that it would be so hard. I am realizing that there is nothing too hard or that takes too much of one's time when you really want to do it.

Left to right: Basil, Mint and Oregano.

Tomato plant. I got about 9 tomato plants total!

My own strawberry pot!!

Growing from seeds: cherry tomatoes and banana peppers!

Collards and Sunflowers!!!

Raised beds built by my wonderful handy husband!!

Mesclum and a red bell pepper plant.

More mesclum.

I would like to announce that these photos are at least a month old. We have harvested our first sweet strawberry. The kale, mustard, squash, green beans, okra and brocolli have sprouted and are growing. My cucumber, zucchini and eggplant are doing marvelously.

Today we planted cantaloupes and another type of squash. I also planted a cherry tomato plant and a jalapeno pepper.

I am so excited and I can't wait to show you more pictures of all this goodness!!

Do you have a garden? Any advice for a first timer??

Blessings, :)
