Today we started up the garden! Last year I was a bit late and my garden didn’t yield very much given the fact that it gets about 215* here in Texas between June and september. This time I wanted to do it right, so I would be able to enjoy the fruits of our labor (our being me and Wes’ mom, Sue. She’s a gardening guru). We are planting all kinds of “salad” veggies in the trough – lettuce, onions, chives, more lettuce and spinach. Front two barrels (plus the planter Wes built me, not pictured) will have tomatoes. Back two barrels have bush cucumbers and Swiss chard. Then we have pots of pepper, basil, oregano, parsley and thyme.
Can’t wait to grow and eat!

Crazy greek and mexican oregano from last summer that survived 110* to 29* and freezing. I named it “Moregano” after my crazy Greek Mexican friend Morgan

  1. I really want to start a garden but I'm afraid to pull the trigger just yet. I could be a gardening failure this year.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and reading my debut novel. If you enjoy it I hope you will leave a positive review on amazon.

    All my best.


I'd love to see what you have to say!
