I am so excited, our garden is finally taking off!! We hit a few bumps in the road with the weather being hot, then cold, too much rain, but we finally got it going and some plants are ready to produce. I can't wait to eat that first ripe tomato! Then comes the canning, and freezing. It's alot of work, but soooooo worth it when you can make chili with your own canned tomato juice, or have taco night with your own canned salsa!

Just thought I would share these pictures with you of our garden we are so proud of! If you think you don't have room for a garden, or time for canning, you can scale it down, and do a container garden. All it takes is a few pots and containers, and a little TLC and you can have fresh fruits, veggies, or even herbs right in your own back yard. Here is a link to some tips from DIY Network for Container Gardening.


  1. I'm so jealous, your garden looks great!

  2. Thanks Catherine! We have worked extra hard this year on our garden. It's bigger than we usually make it, and we have added carrots, butternut squash, onions, and a strawberry patch.
