I had mentioned that I had started a garden back in this post and thought it might be nice to share a couple photos with you all. My small but growing garden has been really exciting for me because many of the things I have planted are edible! As someone who loves to cook, it's great having fresh ingredients on hand. As for vegetables, I have planted: tomatoes (red & yellow), radishes, broccoli, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, zuchini, cucumbers, and carrots. I have plenty of fresh herbs including: rosemary, yellow sage, basil (three kinds), tarragon, lime thyme, parsley, lemon verbena, cilantro, spearmint, chives, Marjoram, chamomile, lavender, chocolate mint, peppermint, oregano, and pineapple sage. And flowers are scattered thru out the garden, some of those are even edible too! It's been so nice to enjoy meals outside on the patio and enjoy life's simple pleasures (like planting something as tiny and insignificant as a seed and watching it sprout into a vegetable). My only regret is that I didn't start planting a garden as soon as I moved in!
