Welcome to my garden!

Yesterday was the start of our now annual tradition of tilling the garden, adding nutrients, and planting all of the starts that will become our wonderful vegetable and flower garden. Over the past three years, we have learned a lot about gardening in our little garden. The first year, we spent endless evenings weeding after we put our son to bed. The second year, we got smart and used weed paper to hold back the villains. Our first year, we didn't realize that we had super fertile ground and so we planted 12 tomato plants that turned into a giant jungle of tomatoes! Now, we start a list in the early spring and get our list of plants just right before we start digging. We love our pretty little garden and I'm excited to share our stories here.
