We have high hopes for our garden this year! The JAKE and I have been working in our flower beds and in the containers you can see in the picture. We are a little challenged for full-sun spots for growing vegetables, so we are trying some container gardening for tomatoes and peppers. We also put in cucumbers, yellow squash, green beans, lettuce, spinach, basil, zucchini, and a smattering of morning glories and marigolds for color.
Katie is already anticipating being able to pick something, run it into the house for a rinse, and then having a snack. I’m hoping we can make a dent in the grocery budget by freezing or canning some veggies. A brief look at our gardening history would not encourage such optimism, but spring is a hopeful time, right?
I wonder what the neighbors will think of our interesting flower beds this year?
