I never thought that I would be much of a gardener. I’m not really sure why, seeing as both sets of our parents are successful gardeners. Kyle’s parents focus mostly on vegetables. My parents (my mom, really) give most of their efforts to prolific flower gardens and many, many house plants. And over the past few years, I’ve really gotten into gardening. Probably because we’ve done many of the interior projects that needed to be done. Now I can focus on the outside.
This year we built a new garden in our yard. It takes advantage of some of the sun we now get after taking down a large, rotting tree last year.
We’ve made it a perennial, shrub, heirloom tomato and basil garden. Many of our neighbors have given us the thumbs up on the project. I wonder if it’s so they can score some tomatoes later in the summer? If the squirrels don’t get to them first, of course.
Have you taken on any new gardening projects this year? Where did you get your supplies?
