I haven’t been painting, staining or building lately because I have been doing THIS!!!!
Gardening is my therapy. There is just something about it that makes me feel good through and through. The fact that you can put a tiny seed in the ground and it will grow a plant with FOOD on it will never cease to amaze me.
I wish I lived on a farm. I wish I had acres and acres and a tractor. But my 1600 square feet of beautiful dirt will have to suffice :) I can’t wait to put the fence up on that side of the yard so it will look even better. We only managed to get up the other side last year.
On the very end there are the raspberries. And next to them is my strawberry patch.
Our big wonderful grape vine is along the back. Red seedless. Yum!
Here you can see my artichokes. Oh how I LOVE artichokes!!! I planted these a few years ago and have been winterizing them. They produced over 200 artichokes last year! You can read my post about them from last year HERE.
The small green patch next to them is oregano. It is another perennial. The very end of the garden is where I had the kids plant their rainbow garden. They are so excited!
I can’t wait to plant everything else! I am a little hesitant since we have had SNOW off and on lately. When all is said and done I will have: raspberries, strawberries, grapes, carrots, watermelon, onions, garlic, celery, lettuce, basil, oregano, tomatoes, several types of peppers, cucumbers, beans, peas, corn, potatoes, radishes, butternut squash, summer squash, ……I know I am forgetting something.
In the past I have planted even more things. It is different every year depending on what I want or need.
Are you planting a garden this year???
