Last Harvest

Last weekend, I decided it was time to pull out the last of the tomato plants in my garden. It was fun to just pick what was left… all different shapes and colors. The garden has been a true joy and look forward to starting again next spring!




My First Veggie Garden

My husband built me this lovely spot to garden, and although I knew zero about vegetables gardens, I thought I’d give it a try!  I planted mostly seedlings that I had started inside.  I also bought two beefsteak tomatoes plants already established. My goal was to keep it organic.

We realized the cones would be needed! The zucchinis were amazing!

Overall it has been a gratifying first experience growing our own garden. We have had an abundance of cucumbers, zucchini, and tomatoes  – so nice to have fresh from the garden to table. Next year I will definitely plan it out better and try new things!
