Pretty much since we got married Mike and I have wanted to have a garden. Mike has the green thumb, I kill almost anything I’ve tried to care for on my own (my snake plant is still surviving… for now) but I love the idea of having fresh fruits, veggies and herbs right in my backyard to cook with! I daydream of the day Mia and I can come home from work/school and go pick things in the garden to cook for dinner.
But a garden is a lot of work, and time is not of plenty around here lately;so we kept putting it off until finally we decided this was the year.
Mike started with some seedlings in the basement then transferred them to pots and eventually outside into the planter boxes that, of course, he made himself. That guy, I tell ya 🙂
Sidenote: not many of the seedlings survived the transplants ( a few did!) So Mike bought some more mature plants to ensure we get a little produce from the season. Also, the herb kit I got from my fanfitfun spring box grew absolutely nothing! Not a sign of growth at all, so husband to the rescue again buying me a small Rosemary, mint, and thyme plant. I’ve used the fresh mint in my water and the rosemary and thyme in my cooking and really enjoy them!
I can’t wait to see how all our little plant friends grow this summer and better yet how they taste! Here are a some pics of the garden as of today :
