My little garden on the East End.
Build houses and settle down; cultivate gardens and eat what they produce. Get married and have children; then help your sons find wives and your daughters find husbands in order that they too may have children. Increase in number there so that you don’t dwindle away. Promote the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because your future depends on its welfare...
My first strawberry...ever!
It tasted delicious, like a little bit of sunshine!
Three broccoli plants are growing in a 2' x 2' container garden along with a tomato plant that is just starting to bloom. After a couple of years of growing broccoli in Iowa, I thought I'd give it a try in West Virginia. So far, so good!
Lettuce is growing in two horizontal containers - lots of yummy varieties are thriving thanks to the morning sun!
two kinds of sage and some lavender
for good measure.
One of the benefits of this garden spot is that I get to enjoy breakfast out on the back porch each morning - gardening slows me down and makes me literally and figuratively 'stop and smell the roses'...or rather petunias and geraniums!
