How does your garden grow?

I'm glad that I can say this; I've been busy lately, like the kind of busy that when I have a day where I don't have anything to do I gladly don't do anything at all. Coming from someone who has been jobless for a while that's a relief.

As soon as the sun came out, I was pulling weeds, tilling dirt, buying vegetables and planting just about everything I could get my hands on. It appears now that I have a full fledged vegetable and herb garden. Something I am very excited about.

Sweet Basil and Arugula seeds are just starting to sprout along with some dill...

More dill, rosemary, boxwood basil and thyme...

Roma tomatoes...

Zucchini, Crooked neck squash, watermelon, parsley and cherry tomatoes...

Onions, and Spearmint...

I can't wait to see all the things I can make from the garden I planted myself. Its a very satisfying feeling. I'm so very glad the sun has finally decided to come out for a while, and since there's been threats of rain on Sunday I better be outside as much as I can until then.

Have a great weekend!


  1. your garden is amazing! I wish I could grow things to eat, but I live in the city :(

  2. This is the first time I've ever had a place to grow something, I've always lived in cities as well :) So for the first time ever, I'm taking advantage of it.

  3. nice work! i *should* have a yard of my very own in the next few weeks and i have high hopes for a fabulous garden!

  4. Oh! Lovely! Go you! I just planted my seedlings last week (Chicago weather allows a bit of a delay), I'm so excited. I planted far more than I think I actually can transplant - i have no idea where I'm going to be able to plant them. May have to use pots and containers all over the yard...

  5. Wow -you're doing a great job! I don't have a backyard to grow a full garden but you've inspired me to grow at least a few herbs on my balcony :) Hope you had a great weekend!

    P.S. I left you a little something over on my blog today
