 how sweet is it to have fresh home grown
no pesticide added food growing in your own backyard?
pretty darn sweet.
 and our little city farmers make it even better :)
special thanks to my awesome husband who makes this garden possible!
(i pretty much just pick, prepare, serve, and eat what he grows ;)
"wholly cow! look how big already!!"
and here is what our gardens grow...
zucchini
strawberries
tomatoes (of a billion varietes)
snap peas
snow peas
green peppers

good top soil, manure, lots of sun, water.

looks awesome jen!

i so wish i had a place with room for a garden. i was thinking about renting a community garden space, but didn't get my act together in time this year. i did plant carrots at my grandpa's house and i plan to visit my favorite local farm stand a ton this season.

hooray for homegrown fruits + veggies!

Mmm, I love home-grown produce. Tastes sooo much better that what you buy at the grocery store. Way to go on your successful garden! :)

Waaa, I want your garden! I actually don't have one, just whatever I can grow on a window ledge, but one day, when I'm grown up, I might have a real life garden with fruit and veg in it. One day...

Oh my. My garden looks really wimpy now. :p I thought I'd be so cool and start with seeds and I think the soil was too cool for so long that everything got such a late start. Next year I'm buying plants from the farmer's market for sure. And we are going to start composting too. And can we borrow Dave? ;) Maybe you could have him do a guest post on here sharing all of his gardening tips?? Please??! ;)
