I don’t really have much of a green thumb, but when Jared and I moved into our new home a month or so ago, I changed my ways. We now have this beautiful garden tucked in the corner of our backyard. This being our very first garden, we didn’t go all crazy with the amount of vegetables and herbs. A friend of ours, bless her heart, planted everything for us as a housewarming gift. We truly have some wonderful friends.
Keeping the vegetables and herbs nice and healthy is a lot of work! Being sure to water them every single day when the sun dies down is a chore. But, we’re really excited to taste freshly ripe vegetables straight from the garden. Take a look at our garden and see the types of vegetables and herbs we planted!
There’s Jared working hard to make those veggies grow!
We have Black Beauty eggplant growing in our garden. There’s the first baby one! So exciting.
We have yellow and green peppers. These veggies are so expensive at the grocery store, I’m glad we now have access to getting them for free!
Four baby peppers are growing strong! Look how cute they are!
Do you see those little holes on the pepper leaves? Well, we had tiny red beetles that ate the leaves! We got some Seven Dust Pesticide from Home Depot and it worked like a charm. We lighted dusted the leaves with the Seven Dust and the beetles are no longer around.
We have two varieties of tomatoes growing—Red Beefsteak and Better Boy.
We have cucumbers for our feta tzatziki sauce!
And strawberries for my fruit-flavored mojitos!
We also have a handful of herbs mixed into our garden as well such as basil and dill…
Fresh thyme and oregano…
And lastly Mexican tarragon.
