Monday~ Greek Salad with grilled chicken

Garden Planning!!!

SPRING IS HERE!! I have been obsessing about the garden and the layout has kept me up at night! You see last year (our 1st garden) Hubs just tossed it all in, no rhyme or reason. No method to his madness,  just a big clump of veggies! Not that it didn’t produce, it was like playing a game of Twister to get to the veggies!

This year that all changed! I researched lots of garden designs and styles and made a game plan PRIOR to planting! I think it is going to work out great! 
I planted 6 different kinds of tomato plants, 3 types of cucumbers, 4 kinds of peppers, lots of herbs, sugar snap peas, garden peas, cantaloupe, squash, strawberries, radishes, eggplant, beets, carrots and some mixed greens! Wooo-weeee!! I can’t wait till they start producing!!!  Everything is in the ground and I am praying that the nice weather stays with us and NO MORE FROST!

P4070033We have RED strawberries!!!
and GREEN tomatoes!! I counted 4.

And speaking of gardening and being GREEN. My blog is Carbon Neutral and there has been a TREE PLANTED for Mama Bird’s Nest!  Take a moment and JOIN NOW!!

1 blog = 1 tree


Do YOU have a garden, what’s growing?
