The Garden

We have expanded our little garden a bit this year... and I can see it will happen again next year! This year has been great for the garden, unlike last year where everything was already rotting from too much moisture and cool temps. While it seems cool it has not been to wet and we have experienced some good chunks of sunshine in between the rain, all things a garden loves!

We have been enjoying spinach from our garden already and this weekend we harvested our first round of radishes - they are yummy! We pulled some and we'll pull more later this week - then it will be time to replant for another enjoyment of radishes. I let Holly harvest the radishes and she loved it. I also took a peek about the garden with her to see how it is growing... we found mini broccoli, sunflowers growing strong, beans all sprouted, strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes in bloom, strong pumpkin & zucchini plants (which I usually do horrible with, keeping hope). Things are looking fantastic and this has been a lot of fun to do with Holly this year, more so than last as she is really getting into gardening and enjoys eating what she grows!
