In The Garden :: A Fabulous Fall

We finally planted our garden! For the first time in a loooooong time, I have a vegetable garden at home. It has been so lovely using the community garden and we will continue to use it for HOT veggies like tomatoes and peppers, but I am so glad that I do not have to load up the kiddos and drive to plant or harvest veggies.
It has always been a dream to be able to go pick supper right before we eat it. What's for dinner? Let's go find out! I may be being a bit too hopeful here, but I am so grateful to have this little place, full of dirt. Full of hope.

  • Summer squash (trombolleto, ronde de nice, BI's big packet This mix includes Caserata, Cocozelle, Black Beauty, Round, Tatume, and Crookneck squash.)
