I’m just going to go right ahead and call this my Summer of Firsts. I’m trying new vegetables and recipes, I’ve been on a massive organizational binge since my washing machine flooded my laundry room and kitchen and I have learned to catch (what? I didn’t know how to catch? No… I didn’t, but now I do!).
And now? I’m knocking a little something off my life-list: I’m planting an honest-to-goodness GARDEN. A real one with vegetables my family can eat, with fruit we can enjoy and herbs I can use to season as I cook. It is like I am finally an adult. Let me be clear, I have never been someone you might accuse of having a green thumb.
In fact, I’ve always been quite the opposite. However, two weeks in (this video production business takes TIME, people) and my garden is actually growing.
I chose red and green peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, raspberries and then the herbs: sweet basil, oregano, rosemary and lavender. And instead of digging up my yard, I opted for pots. SUCCESS!
Here’s the step-by-step….
What do you grow at home? What has given you the greatest success or been the greatest challenge?
Thanks, as always, for watching.
