When it comes to gardening, I’m definitely not an expert but I’ve done my share of experiments. I think I tried too many things last year and not all of them were successful.
So this year I decided to keep it simple. In fact, with so many other projects going on, I almost didn’t do a garden this year. But something changed my mind.
There is something very therapeutic and sort of magical about nurturing a tiny little seed into a living plant that produces food to eat or flowers to enjoy.
So here’s my garden so far – tomatoes, cucumbers, and herbs, because we use them a lot and they do well here, and flowers because they’re pretty. Yes, it’s kind of a jungle at the moment. The PVC structure is a makeshift greenhouse; I took off the plastic already.
I also transformed this ugly cinder block thing into a fabulous ring of sunflowers – and this year I got some tall ones!
