One of my favorite things about summer is having a garden. After moving to Idaho last July, I started a mini garden at Ben's parent's house and it was incredibly successful: all through October we were harvesting snap peas, carrots, beets, dill and other salad ingredients. I was so anxious the whole winter to finally start a garden again, I even grew arugula at home on a windowsill earlier this spring. Finally, it's warm and I can show you what I've grown so far!
This year I'm sharing the garden with Ben's dad. He built many new raised beds and it looks better than ever! So, right now we have all kinds of onions/lettuce/spinach/kale/arugula greens, lots of peas, even more onions, some potatoes, and there are also strawberries, tomatoes, peppers and basil. I'm looking forward to sage, thyme and cucumbers showing up!
I'm so excited, I wish we lived closer and I could just go before work early every morning and later in the evening to check on how everything is getting bigger and riper all the time! Summers are the best.
