Fertile Fridays: Rained Out

Each Friday, I let you have a peek into my garden. This is the first year that my garden has been progressing in such clear and certain order, and I am so excited to share it.

This week, I really wanted to show you the beginnings of blueberries that appeared on the blueberry bushes, promise of berries to come. I wanted to show you the leaves on the apple trees, which suddenly appeared last weekend. And the broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and spinach have been maturing. I wanted to show you the new addition to the garden: a small pepper plant that hasn’t yet distinguished itself. And my very big rosemary plant that I’ve already clipped from to season a roast … I wanted you to see that too.

But it rained today. Not all day, but just enough that every time I went to take more photos, I feared for my camera. So I didn’t. Instead. I snapped just the one photo you see, of my herb container garden on the back porch. Inside is thyme, basil and sage … I can’t wait to eat those too.

As for the crate? Snapple used it in a press kit they sent me. And I loved that I could so easily repurpose it. I would hate for all that wood to go to waste.

Next week? More photos. Lots. I promise.

What beautiful plants; great box, too. Way to reuse! I have to thank you for the Sweet Potato Fries recipe. What a nice change it was from regular potatoes. :)

I KNEW we had things in common! LOL Whenever I move somewhere, kitchen herbs are the first things to go into the garden, along with fruits and veggies. I'm enjoying reading your blog and can't wait for more pics. Take care of you.

Love the repurposed crate! More planting scheduled for next week - got a massive amount of seeds from local store going out of business. Can't wait till the basil starts growing... and to see more pics from your garden!
