My New Obsession

My new obsession lately has been my little patio garden. This year I planted everything earlier because, I want them to have a chance to grow before the patio turns into a searing oven.

I've planted tomatoes, sage, cilantro, lettuce, radishes, carrots, cauliflower, and other things. And they're actually growing! I'm so excited...which got one of my friends all excited. So we decided to plant gardens together. We each have our own tomatoes and herbs. However, we decided to plant things that we could trade with each other.

My first little green tomato!

We're both very excited. Maybe a little too excited? Because we decided to get one of those veggie garden plots in a community garden. We drove out to check it out and see what we got. It's very close to Tracy, so she'll take care of the day to day maintenance. I'll come out a couple times a week to clean up and all that fun stuff. The part I'm not looking forward to...getting all the rocks out of that garden. Luckily the community garden we are a part of has everything we need. sifters, wheel barrels, tools, all that stuff. All that's left is the hard labor. Luckily Mario volunteered to help with that...nice guy. Still going to be a lot of work.

My sage is growing like crazy...I can't wait to use it!

So now we have to choose what other veggies we want...


  1. good for you! i've tried so hard, but everything dies on me. i had succulents last summer and that died! the only thing that stayed alive was my mint for my mojitos.

  2. Wow, that's awesome. I so badly want to do a small veggie patio garden in the back but we aren't huge veggie eaters but we are getting there. I love watching stuff grow. Exciting.

  3. Hey the mint for the mojitos really is the most important part...besides the tomatoes for me. I've had some very poor luck growing things in the past years, so we'll see how it goes this year.


Talk to me...
