I distinctly remember sitting and crying after we signed papers on this house almost 3 years ago. It was banked owned and the previous owners had done nothing with the property. There was no grass, only weeds. No flowers and no flower beds and there were no trees. There was nothing, except a quarter acre of weeds.
Judah had just discovered how wonderful it is to play outside and after signing those papers, I realized that my boy wouldn't have any trees to play in. Well, let's fast forward a few years. God has been so faithful to us here.
Tonight we had our first salad of the year from the garden and although we aren't really "country", we've brought our piece of country into this cul-de-sac.
Lettuce, spinach and cilantro from the garden for tonight's taco salad.
Since moving in almost 3 years ago, we've planted everything from fruit trees, to willows, to hydrangeas, to roses, lilacs and bulbs. We've built garden beds, planted herbs given to us from friends. Planted rhubarb, flowers and veggies. My husband has worked his tail off getting rid of those weeds and now we have beautiful grass. I truly am so thankful every time I see a bird in one of our trees or see a flower that we planted bloom.
This year I planted Marigolds next to the broccoli. I hope they keep the bugs away!
This garden bed has garlic, spinach, beets and carrots.
What are you growing right now?
