Garden Update

I came across some pictures of the garden when we first planted it. WOW! What a difference a couple of months can make. Here is the veggie and herb garden back in April:

Here it is now:

My husband installed a drip irrigation system which has helped tremendously. The plants are getting water just at the root system, where they need it and I never have to pick up the hose and water. Brilliant!

The system is based off a main head and has lines that branch off to each plant. The system is on a timer so we can adjust how much water the plants get and when they get it.

Now, will someone tell me what you can do with a ton of Basil. Yep, I've already made Pesto.


  1. Ha- I am in the same boat with you on all the basil. We have done the pesto a few times over now... and the tomatoes and basil with balsamic vinegar I am sure is nothing new for you. Outside of that I too am looking for things to do with it. Everything looks great though!

    1. Thanks! The rain has really helped the garden this year. My Juliet tomatoes are growing and producing like crazy! Thanks for stopping by.
