Backyard Garden

The weather is finally nice, so we decided to get the garden in before the rain this week. So last weekend, while I cut and seeded the grass, my wife tilled and planted most of the garden. We had some survivors from last year’s crop. Our chives are thriving, as well as our parsley, sage and oregano.


The right side of the garden will have herbs (rosemary, thyme, Greek oregano, parsley, chives, basil, mint and lavender), red and yellow onions, strawberries and cantaloupe. The left side will have heirloom, roma and green tomatoes, red and green bell peppers, cayenne and banana peppers, squash and zucchini. There’s more room, so maybe we’ll plant some radicchio and eggplant later this month.

UPDATE 5/09:

Everything is starting to grow:


We had an unexpected frost not too long ago, and we thought we lost a few plants. It turns out they’re more resilient than they look. We added some eggplant, fennel and tomatillos since the last picture. Our squash are starting to bloom, and we’ve already gotten a few strawberries.
