gardening, flowers, and such...

Jack and I had so much fun planning our very first garden; and we are looking forward even more to reaping the benefits!! :)

We chose to stick with the basics:  onions, peppers, spinach, lettuce, romaine, tomatoes, and zucchini.

Because we have a problem with rabbits we decided on a raised bed garden and enclosed it with chicken wire. 

My handy husband also built me this planter box using some pallets... :)

We also wanted some fresh herbs so we decided to start off with cilantro, parsley, and basil.
Can't wait to do some cooking with these!!

Don't let the picture below fool you...our bird feeder is never full.  Seems just as soon as I put bird seed in it, we get a tree full of birds stuffing their faces...need to put them birds on a diet! ;)

Are you planting a garden?  What do you plant?  Any helpful tips to share?  :)
Happy Planting!

  1. If you mulch around your plants with grass clippings you won't have to weed - and, you can save your egg shells in a pitcher of water and water your tomatoes with that- the calcium in the shells is good for tomatoes. Erin Rich:)
