I’ve been talking about wanting to garden forever, and I always had an excuse to do it the next year. One year I started seeds in the house, but we ended up traveling for a week without plant sitters and the rest is history.  Well, lo and behold our new home had a raised bed already installed, and I was determined that this would be the year that I would actually make that garden happen.  I do not have a green thumb by any stretch of the imagination, so I wanted to stick with a simple plan. The plan was to plant foods that we enjoy eating and were fairly easy to grow.

I used my handy dandy sketch book, and mapped out a plan with our favorite vegetables.

So far, I’ve planted two lettuce types, broccoli, and swiss chard.  We’ve never eaten swiss chard, but a friend recommended it for its tastiness and to serve as a fast growing confidence builder for this first time gardener.  It has been growing beautifully, along with a few weeds, and I can’t wait to give it a try when we harvest it.  Just like painting, gardening has been relaxing, and I often find myself engaging in correlations about life as I dig, plant, water, and wait.

Dig, plant, water, wait…the life lessons of gardening.

In a few more weeks, I hope to add in some peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and summer squash.  Yum!!  I picked up some sage this week, and need to get that in my herbs dedicated section. So far, so good, and I can’t wait to share harvest pics with you. Follow me on Instagram, for behind the scenes:)

I found a local garden stand nearby instead of starting from seeds. No excuses, right:)
