Alana's First Garden
While my mom was in town this weekend, she was nice enough to plant me a patio container garden! I now have three large planters growing yummy goodies such as strawberries, jalapenos, cherry peppers, corn, carrots, swiss chard, kale, spinach, fennel, tomatillos, and a wide variety of herbs. I can't wait to harvest and cook from my own garden! Here's a picture of the just-planted veggies:
I love how the light goes through the bright red swiss chard stalks. Here are my herbs:
That's purple basil in the middle -- I'm pumped to make some purple pesto! I'll be blogging more about my garden this summer as things sprout, flower, and/or ripen. Stay tuned!
