garden dreaming

we are planning, scheming, building, dreaming and planting our summer garden.
a tad on the late side, but hey, better late than never and this is california, where we can grow veggies pretty much year round.
the kids carefully selected seeds from the renee's garden seed stand at the hardware store, we acquired seedlings from various generous folks (willing to accept more), the trees were trimmed by the hubby, i am hoping for 2 raised veggie beds for mother's day (this sunday), jude is busy reading "the backyard homestead", i placed a request for a dees custom built chicken coop and the hopefully the sharing of veggie love will commence soon.
currently, in the back yard garden are: almost ripe blueberries and strawberries, figs growing, lime blossoms, a lemon tree dropping its fruit, new lettuce, a multitude of chives and thriving basil plants.
looking good already.
plus, i just harvested the compost pile so fresh dirt is ready for those raised beds.

the above seed kit was a birthday gift to me from a dear friend found at red envelope.


  1. I got lettuce, tomatoes, blue lake green beens, broccoli, radishes, carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash, beets (2 kinds!), sweet peppers, hot peppers, strawberries, other berries and some fruit trees: apple, fig, pluot, lemon,...)

    Let the great garden love begin!

  2. Really gotta make it out to visit you! Sounds like a lot of backyard loveliness!
