We just planted our vegetable garden yesterday. Might be late in the season to plant tomatoes, but I was determined. My husband constructed the raised beds out of untreated cedar. The soil is a garden mix amended with compost.
Here is the big reveal:
We are planning on filling in around the beds with decomposed granite.
We planted an assortment of tomatoes including: Brandywine, Arkansas Travelers, Cherokee Purple and Juliet.
Of course, I had to have some herbs in the garden. Can't wait to walk outside and pick off a sprig or two for whatever I'm cooking.
We love to use this Pineapple Sage in a marinade for chicken. Apparently, the hummingbirds like it for the red, tubular blooms.
Love the smell of this chocolate mint.
We planted two Flat Leaf Parsley plants, one for us and one for the Swallowtail butterflies.
Can't wait to use these chive blossoms to decorate summer soups and salads.
What a huge improvement and accomplishment considering the garden looked like this just a couple of weeks ago. Thank you to my dear hubby for making my garden dreams come true:)
