Gardening in the Suburbs

We have been growing certain things like tomatoes, basil, cilantro, and other herbs for years now. However, last year we decided to really kick it up a notch. I was sick of paying organic prices for veggies and herbs and knew we could also cut our grocery bill big time in the long run. We live in a coastal town so our soil here is mainly sand, which made garden boxes a must. My sweet husband is incredibly handy and built them all himself along with an irrigation system. We had a lot of lessons learned last year with overcrowding some plants and how we wanted to do things this year. Well, it’s beginning to really take off beautifully. Can’t wait to begin cooking with these beauties.🍆🍅🌶

Squash & Zucchini


Jalapeños & Sweet Peppers


Eggplant 


Grafted Tomatoes – This is our first year buying grafted. They are suppose to be amazing. We will see….I’m a southern girl who practically lives on tomato sandwiches and tomato pies during the summer, so I’m a tough critic!!🍅

We also did a flower box this year that’s beginning to sprout, plus herbs, garlic, and the pumpkins will be planted this week. Can’t wait to see how this year’s garden does – this all makes my heart so happy.🌱
