First of all I want to say that I am sick of AOL. I did an entry earlier this afternoon that took me about an hour and tried to save it and it would not let me save it. I tried about 10 times and then my computer booted me off. I guess I am going to try again.
Here is my garden that my husband built for me last year. This picture is from yesterday but he just finished putting in more plants tonight. He told me we have way too many plants so we are either going to give them to the neighbors or try to plant them in some pots. He even used the side of our house this year because we had so many. I told him that side of the house doesn't get much sun but he wants to see if they will grow.
Here is my strawberry plant.
If you look real close you can see 2 strawberries already. I think we are going to put this in a container. I have a strawberry terra cotta pot but hubby doesn't want to use it. I told him I used it for my herbs last year and the herbs turned out great. Sometimes I don't know what he is thinking. LOL
This is my chive and dill plants. I have 2 more chives in a windown container. I love using chives in my salads. I already used the dill in soup that I made on Sunday. I worked with this lady years ago who brought in a dill dip and it was fantastic. I never made it but I found the recipe the other day and I can't wait to make it. I think I will wait until my dill plant gets alittle bigger.
This is my cilantro plants. We had so many that my husband had to put a few in the ground next to some of the flowers. I use it in my homemade salsa, soups and tacos.
This is my peppermint and chocolate mint. I will probably look on line to find some recipes to use those. I know some of it I will use in tea. I am thinking of maybe chocolate chip mint cookies. Right now I am sick of making cookies because I made another 3 1/2 dozen oatmeal cookies. My husband is loving them. I only had a few. I swear.
We have no room for the carrots
and bell peppers that I started from seeds. I might go this weekend and see about what kind of containers I can use for these vegetables.
Ok I guess I am done. Sorry, I am going on and on but we take such pride in our garden. We have wanted our own home and garden for a long time. We both were brought up in apartments and we thought that we would never have a home of our own. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with growing up in an apartment. I was loved so much by my parents and I just wish that they could have experienced having a home of their own. I guess with 8 kids they couldn't afford it. I am just happy that my dream came through.
This is my daughter and my neighbors daughter painting their fence. The girls did this last year and they had a blast. It comes off after it rains a few times.
It is almost 10 pm and I think I will get ready for bed.
