on wednesday, over at tend, i shared the progress we are making on our 1,000 sq. ft garden. it's amazing how much goes unnoticed, in terms of growth, unless it's captured in photograph.
here's our garden just eight weeks ago:
here's our garden this week:
june 18th, 2014
isn't that so amazing? i was blown away when scrolling through instagram late one night & i came across that first photo & the date.
that's why i love amanda soule's practice of capturing her garden & it's changes each week. it's proof that the little spare moments we have between this & that to weed, water & love really do add up to something much bigger than ourselves.
i thought i'd take you on a little tour of our current garden happenings...
we're harvesting bags full of basil for farm customers. our cucumbers have yet to grow up our trellis. that's another project for another day, yes?
we grew some of the most beautiful cabbage this year. luke has big plans for jars of kimchi & sauerkraut. our annual flowers are doing so well. the only change i will make for next year is to plant zinnas in front of the road. they're covered up by our giant sunflowers!
we're slowly adding homemade tomato cages to each of our 48 tomato plants. i insisted on a garden full of tomatoes for putting up jars of homegrown goodness. our perennial flower bed is just stunning. this is truly the garden of my dreams.
here are a few of my other favorite gardens & gardeners:
- i love elise's approach to gardening. she started with containers & has since moved up to raised beds. her approach is simple & invites others to dig in!
