Anyway this is what we are growing...or attempting to grow. I've already had a fail, which you will see.
First up, my herbs...haven't really cooked with them much. But I hope I will at some point. I have 2 different kinds of basil (because I wanted basil and didn't realize I already purchased one kind!), Oregano, Rosemary, and Basil..they are thriving in my herb box.
Then we move on to our makeshift garden..the BIG one! Okay so its only 3 ft by 20 ft, but its working. This was not the original idea, where I really wanted it it didn't get much sun. I didn't want it behind our house as I couldn't take the boys out there without them wandering and we had to buy dirt anyway as our soil...if you can call it that is all rock and sand.
The first thing you see when you walk out our gate is my lettuce....its of the romaine family. Can't remember what its called really, but it has been quite tasty. I have been harvesting the leaves when I notice they are starting to get big and falling over...you can harvest the whole head, but this will allow it to last longer considering I had 6 heads growing.
Next is my um...broccoli and cauliflower. As you can see from the picture, I have broccoli flowers now. I had 3 plants and all 3 had cute little heads and then BOOM they grew taller and flowered. So I did something wrong, so if anyone has any suggestions let me know. I am going to let them seed and then sprout them for broccoli sprouts, they sound tasty. And I also need to add that A was one excited 3 year old about the broccoli, after all it is his favorite!
Beside that we have some zuchhini and summer squash growing...I think I have 2 mounds of each. But I'm not sure which is which as a little boy ran off with my makers...I have one tiny squash growing so far and a BUNCH of flowers. I've grown these in the past and I have yet to kill them.
Next are my cucumbers...and I actually have 2 pretty good size ones already! I wasn't sure they were going to survive as we had a little accident when it got really cold one night, but I went ahead and planted them and they are also thriving. This is a good thing as A LOVES them! He got quite excited to see I bought some the other day!
