Happy Monday Everyone!
I have been so busy this weekend. I came home to visit some family and relax a little. Gavin is out of town:( so I have been keeping myself busy. He took the camera to Boston, so I wont be able to share pics from the garden...but if only you could have seen the feast my little sister and I shared for dinner last night. We went out late Sunday afternoon to pick tons of veggies from moms garden. Here is a small list of the goodies we gathered:

new potatoes (red and golden)
onions (red and yellow)
purple cabbage
carrots
beans
spinach
tomatoes
basil
dill

and what did we make you ask?
A delicious soup of course!

But you don’t need a farm to grow fresh vegetables, herbs and fruits. You don’t really even need a garden, check out some of these neat tricks to grow your own veggies, trust me they will taste WAY better than the ones in the store.

I tried to find some pics of super pretty gardens, maybe to convince someone to start to grow there own veggies.

  4. Okay, those gardens are beautiful. I think I may try the shelve like garden next year. I've tried and tried to start a patio garden and I kill it every year because I travel too much. I end up just going to the farmers market. Which is good because it's local but still. I adore adore your blog. I'm so happy I stumbled upon it. Now following. :)
