Robbie and I have always talked about growing a garden at home. It is something I have wanted to do for years, but didn't have the space for. Our current place has more than enough space, so now that we are fully settled, we broke ground on our first garden.
For our maiden voyage, we planted flowers, tomatoes, and herbs. The herbs shot straight up and grew to be taller than me! The flowers blossomed early and were a beautiful addition to the overall landscape. The tomatoes have taken the longest to flower and ripen, but they have continued to produce well into October. It has been satisfying to see the fruits of our labor (literally!) and be able to incorporate them into our diet. I've found that there really is nothing better than biting into a fresh tomato picked right off the vine. Next year, we hope to grow corn!
Do you have a garden? Is it an urban garden? What are favorite things to grow?
