This weekend we officially kicked off our garden and got our hands dirty. I love having our garden. Nothing beats picking super fresh veggies right from your own backyard to enjoy. Saturday we picked up a few tomato plants, squash, zucchini, onions, and okra. We’ll be adding more over the next few weeks too. Hubs knows how much I love fresh herbs for cooking and we were going to wait and buy them later but happened to find this great little nursery on our way home from the grocery store on Sunday and ended up with the most fragrant and beautiful herbs I’ve ever seen.
I picked up basil, chives, parsley, cilantro, dill, lavender, lemon balm, and spearmint. I’m so excited to cook with and just enjoy the smell of them! Has anyone else started gardening? To be honest, I have a brown thumb but herbs I tend to do pretty well with. Oh and I couldn’t help but scoop up a fresh basket of strawberries! They are intoxicating!
