My Garden

 
 My garden out back

I have a garden!  I have wanted to garden for a long time but never really got very far.  This raised bed has been in my back yard for years but I had never planted anything in it; now, I have a small variety of herbs and flowers and it makes me so happy :)  I am growing basil, oregano, parsley, two types of tomatoes, and two types of peppers (I like really spicy food). 

 I am not really sure when to pick these peppers but they are getting big!

 I am looking forward to cooking with these.

 I only have two tomatoes right now.

Do you garden?  I would appreciate any feedback or advice you might have.

Fantastic! I love to garden & grow my own vegetables. Unfortunately, I've only had luck with tomatoes & herbs.

I love my herbs, though, especially since they are perennials & they grow back quite nicely the next year. And they smell HEAVENLY!

I have oregano, mint, rosemary & lavender - I need to get some more.

Happiness,
Corrinne

That is an awesome garden for a small space. I need to plant more herbs in mine. I only have basil, but we have lot of other things too. The peas are really doing well right now and we are harvesting almost every day. It is so fun!

I just started growing basil, parsley and peppers. I have absolutely NO IDEA what I'm doing. Haha. If anything, I'm sure I'll learn a lot!
