Back in April my daughter and I bought seeds and plants with no rhyme or reason. We planted Willy Nilly and stepped back to see what would happen.
Here are the preliminary results…
My April picture has been a great help to me. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stood by my garden pondering, “What the heck IS that thing!” Looking at the before picture I now know that the mystery plant on the right is going to give us long Asian beans. I have lettuce growing underneath the squash. I can’t eat the lettuce but my rabbit and guinea pigs love the freshly grown greens.
I use my cilantro in ground turkey along with lime juice, jalepenos, garlic and olive oil. The rosemary is put on grilled food and sprinkled on spaghetti. No really, try it!
We’ve already enjoyed three tomatoes. Well, my daughter and I enjoyed two while Mr. Squirrel enjoyed one of his very own. And the peas? Oh the fresh, warmed by the sun peas! They never make it to the pot.
So as of now, my garden is indeed a mirror of my life. The best of intentions, some chaos, a little hope, warm sun, love, luck and something beautiful grows!
