Our "garden"

The best thing about summer in my opinion is fresh produce.  I look forward to going to Farmer's Markets, and getting things from family and friends.  They always want to share!  Since we are apartment dwellers we have no yard (sadsies), so I thought I'd try to grow a few things in containers this year. 

We've got some herbs; basil, oregano and chives and I'm also trying radishes, swiss chard and a salad blend. 

Everything has sprouted!  It is so hot here in NC right now that I'm hoping everything will make it through. I would still like to get some cherry tomato plants, too.

So keep your fingers crossed for me that my little garden will be fruitful for us!  What are you growing this summer?

Yeah for gardens! We are growing blueberries, raspberries, tomatoes, rainbow chard, tomatillos, brussel sprouts, herbs, summer squash, strawberries and lemons. Whew! I can't wait to see all your veggies.

Well, you saw my blog so you know we have roses, weeds, daisies, green beans, cucumbers, maters, zucchini, squash, carrots and an occasional turtle. But you may not have seen the peppers, rosemary, chives, weeds, and irises.

Yes Becky you have a great garden! I know you are so excited for the weeds to come in fully!

Crystal - Yay for your garden! Don't worry about hot weather for your herbs...they're all originally from the Mediterranean anyway,so they love hot weather. Just make sure they get 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day and water every other day!
