Like every good crunchy mom, it’s time for me to plant my families garden. Filled with herbs, lettuce, tomatoes, berries and even cantaloupe, our garden is going to be the nicest on the block without a weed in sight.
Yeah, who am I kidding. The only reason why we have raspberry bushes is, because they are wild. I do not have a green thumb. I can keep basil alive, and somehow grow 10,000 cucumbers off a single plant, but anything beyond that is foreign to me.
But I am bound and determined to grow the following; blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, basil, snap peas and dill. A small garden which will hopefully be less maintenance than what I’m envisioning. While I am excited to be providing my family with fresher ingredients, I am more excited about just going into the yard to grab a handful of berries.
What type of plants do you have in your garden? We are planting in Southwestern Michigan on sandy soil. It’s mainly in the shade, but I’m determined to grow at least something… Anything… Or I will just support our farmers market starting on the 1st.
