Growin' Green - Part 2

LOOK! A Garden (and my garden guru) The only thing edible right now is the leafy veggies; arugula, spinach, buttercrunch. However, little flowers are blooming on the tomato plants, meaning the fruit can't be too far behind!

Brussels sprouts (ew) and broccoli!


Herbs! Basil, Italian Cilantro, and Parsley.. Potted herbs are a requirement in my life.

Thanks to my Dad and Mom for all the help they've done with the garden. When more of the plants start producing I will take some foodie photos, and maybe even post a couple recipes. I might actually get around to a good pickling post! Dill pickles are one of my favorite foods. Last year when we made some they didn't turn out as crunchy as I had hoped.. So we'll have to try again!



  1. Beautiful garden!

    I can't to have the time and money to take over my grandparents' garden (I probably won't have one of mine own for quite some time). I also can't wait to learn how to pickle things, make jam/jelly and various wines from fresh fruit/flowers!

    I hate dill pickles! :) I'm a sweet pickle kind of girl. But I do hope yours turn out this time!

  2. This is amazing, I'm jealous. I wish I had more space for my garden that was exposed to the sun. Unfortunately the majority of my yard is shaded
