Welcome to my gardening page. We moved into our current house in 2013 and for several years have maintained a vegetable garden. For the most part, the background had been left alone regarding landscaping. In 2019, with the addition of a sunroom and deck, we had an opportunity to transform the rest of the garden into something more enjoyable than just grass. We started planting bulbs in the fall of 2019 and then added seeds and starters throughout 2020. As you can see, we're just getting started.

Here I'll be tracking all that we're growing. Below are all the flowers that have bloomed so far. We've also planted several new trees, and we have our regular vegetable garden, which includes:

  • Tomatoes
  • Snap Peas
  • Basil
  • Arugula
  • Cucumbers
  • Zucchini
  • Carrots
  • Green Peppers
  • Green Onions
  • Green Beans
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Potatoes
  • Strawberries
  • Corn (we didn't plant it, but it's somehow growing)
We gained a lime bush, but don't expect any fruit this year.
