I love being in the garden. It's just so peaceful. Having recently moved from the desert and originally being from New York I am just so amazed by it! It's hard to believe that just 4 months ago we had a 12x6 raised bed of dirt and now pretty much every day we can go out and get something to eat from it! The tiny little seeds that I planted in the dirt have become towering bean stalks, and broccoli, and radishes and lettuce. The little 1ft tall corn starts and pea starts that I bought at the Farmers Market have turned into 6 foot tall plants with beautiful veggies on them. The corn isn't quite there yet but it's getting ready to flower. We have at least 6 different types of tomatoes that are all starting to come in, as well as different varieties of peppers.
We had a few free squares yesterday after pulling up some amazing broccoli and cauliflower, and also by a sneak attack from the chickens who munched on a bunch of kale an lettuce! We also had a few extra seeds so just started some more celery, carrots, radishes, lettuce and okra. Hopefully they all turn out okay...then it's time to start planning the fall crop :-)
