Our Garden

Patrick and I feel so fortunate to have a front porch and backyard, while living in an apartment in Orange County. It is pretty unusual to have much of a yard in this area, even living in a home, so we feel very fortunate. Patrick has been hard at work on growing grass in the backyard and the lawn is looking great. We even bought him a lawnmower. He was so excited! We decided a few months ago we also wanted to grown a garden on the front patio. So for a few Saturdays we worked on pulling all of the overgrown bushes, removing years of adandoned trash, and planting our little garden. We really had low expectations and weren't expecting much to grown, but three weeks later look what has popped up:


Green Beans



The Patio

Also not pictured here are carrots and watermelons. Notice the little table set in the picture... that was a gift from my sweet husband for Mother's Day. It was a "future mother of his children present". Who knew? I didn't think I qualified for a gift. Anyhow, we are grateful for the opportunity to work together on a project like this. The first thing I do when I get home at night is see how things have grown and water. You wouldn't think 24 hours makes that big of a difference, but some days I am amazed. We should have some very yummy fresh salad ready to eat just in time for Summer. Stay tuned to see how our garden grows.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!

You look really familiar to me. Are you from Redlands? And I know Billy and Katie, and Pete and Leah from your sidebar. Small world.
