Family Gardening, Family Fun, Family Food
This was our garden in early spring. The photos below show how it has thrived in the past several weeks.

Our family is so excited about having our garden growing so well this year.
With lots of rain and lots of sunshine (sometimes both at the same time!) it has been a perfect growing season.
Urban gardening (in our case sub-urban) can be done. Even though the whole family is super busy, growing our garden is one of our favorite activities, and we love the fresh, organic foods. We grow enough to eat and still have plenty left to share. In season, I often use some of our home-grown garlic and herbs to flavor some of my Fantastico dishes. Sure beats commercially processed flavorings any day.
Pictured here are some of the items we are growing this year.
In addition to our herb garden (rosemary, sage, basil, oregano), we should see a good healthy crop of vegetables. We have five different types of tomatoes (including giant beef, plum, grape, cherry and a hybrid), three different types of hot peppers (jalapeno, cayenne and banana); red, yellow and orange bell peppers; pimentos; zucchini, yellow squash, green onions, radishes, and butternut squash. This is in addition to our fruit trees – pears, peaches, plums, apples and figs. PLUS strawberries and blueberries.
I will update you gardeners out there with the harvests and successes (and failures?) of our fruits and veggies.
