I am so happy to finally give you a little peek at my 2014 garden, the place where my husband and I have been working our butts off most weekends for the past few months.
Here’s what it looked like earlier this spring…

Gardening has become a favorite hobby of mine…and something my husband and I love to do together. We garden in raised beds here. Here’s a closer look at some of the things we have growing…in no particular order these photos show lots of greens including kale and chard, beets, peas, herbs, tomatoes, tomatillos, various squashes, cucumbers, watermelon, and onions. You can also see that I have some flowers in my veggie garden.
I’ll be sharing more photos of my garden in upcoming posts, and of course plenty of recipes featuring my homegrown goods!
Growing some of the food that my family eats is extremely satisfying: it’s an experience I wish for everyone. To help you get started with gardening (or to give you a boost if you are already a seasoned gardener), I am giving away some great gardening tools courtesy of OXO.
