how does your garden grow?

sweet peas


and broccoli

some even with flowers! (oops - I think I should have picked this sooner....)

Red Lettuce

And lavender.


I love this method of gardening. If you have ever wanted to garden, but were too intimidated to try - this is a great way to start! This is my 3rd year and it's getting easier and better and more fun. It's like a science experiment all summer long. I learned last year not to plant 4 foot zinnias in my boxes, they leached everything out so my produce didn't produce!

If you are gardening and blogging about it, let me know! I love seeing what people are doing.

We will resume our regularly scheduled sewing after this. I've got a few blocks to sew together.

We did the square foot gardening last year - it really is great...but we are pretty bad gardeners! Yours looks fantastic!

you have real peas already? when did you get your seeds in? we just have leafless beanstalks. we have cute little bunnies in our yard who love bean leaves, i guess.
