Hippie Love Garden

Oh I am in heaven, not only is it summer, but we have been spending all of our free time outside in our garden. This is my first year trying to grow anything but basil, and I didn't come into it without lots of doubt. Our yard used to be covered in rocks, and I had no idea what I was doing... Yet, I have been happily proved wrong! We are growing raspberries, chard, lots of kale, tomatoes, peppers, brocolli, parley, basil, cauliflower, zuccini, cucumbers, peas, beans, and and and can you tell I'm excited?! We also have a little pumpkin patch for our daughter, and about a million watermelons. We had our first harvest last night of some kale, chard, basil and parsley, and it was pretty much the best feeling ever to watch my toddler eat the kale raw....shes hardcore....

Well just like a proud momma I had to take some pictures, I think Taj and I are a little too excited about this garden, seeing as it consumes most of our conversations...I mean the idea of growing food isn't exactly a new thing. But, something must be said for growing it yourself, its a magical experience! For those of you without a yard, try a window box, or container gardening. You could probably still start one for this season, putting basil, kale or chard in it...those have grown fast for me!

Now what to do with all these vegetables.......
