Our gardens

We are by no mean gardeners.

This is our second go at it.

We tried a couple of years ago and got some peas and a big mess of “not really grown” anything!

We skipped a summer as Jonathan worked overnight and we were traveling to my father’s place which meant the garden would not get the attention it needed.

This year, we are trying a limited amount of vegetables and strawberries!

We’ve had 3 really small strawberries 🙂


We are trying to grow pumpkins and learned today that we might need to try and fertilize the flowers.IMG_3826IMG_3828

We have picked a handful of green and yellow beans

We are growing cherry tomatoes, red and yellow


So far, we’ve picked maybe 10 yellow cherry tomatoes and will finally get to try some of the red ones

We are hoping to grow some tomatoes that would be big enough to make a sandwich…


Our only pepper so far wasn’t really good but we still have 3 more coming!


Our only successful story is this lovely basil plant which we bought this big and managed not to kill it.  We’ve used lots of it and it’s still growing!


And now you know why we get a weekly vegetable basket from a nearby farm!

I am trying something different today, thanks to a new blog I have been following lately.


Who shared a blog she’s been following

Fav Foto Friday #6 – Scribbles & Musingshttp://scribblesandmusings.com/fav-foto-friday-6/

So now, I have found a new blog to follow and a fun way to share my favorite picture for the week!

Look at those colors!  Gardening season is fairly short here and for the second year, we are subscribing to a farmer’s basket. On Wednesday, I get my vegetables based on what they have picked-up. It’s my weekly surprise and I love it.

Maybe not my most artistic shot but a really inspirational one if you like cooking!

Anyone has a suggestion of something to do with cabbage other than coleslaw, cabbage roll or chopping it into a soup?  Please tell me as I now have 3 cabbages. 1 purple and 3 green.
