Finally, A REAL Garden!

In case you’ve missed the news, the family and I recently moved from a condo to a house. Finally, I got my garden! I’ve wanted to have a garden of my own since I can remember. I tried growing my garden about 2 years ago in our condo but the only thing we were able to keep alive was our basil. Whether I put them out on the balcony or  brought them inside, soil or water, nothing worked.

Now that I have the space,  I plan to eventually expand and be able to sustain my family’s new pescatarian diet with fruits and vegetables from our garden.

At the end of the season, I intend to dry half of my harvest and freeze the other half.  Recently I’ve added my “handy herb” garden on my deck. It’s a cute rack I found on sale at Marshalls. My husband drilled a few holes in the bottom and it was good to go! This will be my everyday garden that I’ll likely replant repeatedly as I use. I wanted to have fresh herbs for use without compromising my young plants.

As I grow, I’ll continue to share my progress and tips along the way. I know I will be working on protecting my plants from wildlife soon LOL.  Leave a comment below, have you ever grown a garden in a multi family building or indoors? What are some of your gardening tips? I’d love to hear from you!

I guess the baking bug hit me or it could just be the pregnancy cravings. I’m usually a terrible baker and just avoid it all costs. The creative in me isn’t good at following directions. But these day
