Our Garden

My husband and I put a garden in 4 years when we first bought our house. Gardening is a tradition in both our families, so when we bought our first house we knew that we would put a garden in ASAP. This year I cannot take much credit because my husband did most of the work, but in all fairness, I tried to help and he didn’t want my help because “I wouldn’t do it right”. Men! Anyway, I buy all the seeds and plants because we garden organically, which means without pesticides and other harmful products. I get my seeds and plants from: Whole Foods, Lowe's (seeds only), the Piazza at Schmidt’s (plants), and a few plants at an organic grocery in VA beach. This year we have: carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, a ton of tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot peppers, potatoes, pineapple mint, dill, cilantro, oregano, basil, purple basil, lemon basil, Italian flat-leaf parsley, sage, and thyme.

Here are some pictures of the garden now. I will post more of the garden as it grows.
