How Does Our Garden Grow {Keehner Style}

Gardening is one of my ABSOLUTE favorite hobbies and one that I love sharing with my kids.  Since moving into our new house I’ve struggled to find a great place for our vegetable garden. Out of ease and with my “hurry get it done” attitude, the veggies were planted along the back of the house very close to the brick that gets the afternoon sun. Needless to say this area hasn’t proven to be the most successful for gardening and we decided to make a change for this summer.

Look at the beautiful box gardens that Mr. Herron and Rick built for us and we have certainly utilized every last inch of space for the veggies this summer:

  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Sun Gold Tomatoes
  • Big Wonder Tomatoes
  • Mystery Tomato courtesy of Sandy, courtesy of my Mom, courtesy of my Uncle Tom – this will be a miracle tomato plant if it produces!
  • Squash
  • Zucchini
  • Chocolate Peppers
  • Orange Bell Peppers
  • Yellow Bell Peppers
  • Sassy Peppers (I think these are red bells??)
  • Garden Salsa Peppers (on the spicy side)
  • Basil
  • Rosemary
  • Cilantro
  • Cucumbers

My mouth is WATERING just thinking about the yumminess that we are going to produce this summer. All we need to do now is give it some water and love. Hoping to have as much success as we did on Willfleet, I love going back to this blog post to remember my little garden helper and the beautiful plants that surprised the heck out of me. This year my Abbey-girl and Jack were both helping and I think their green thumbs will prove to be good luck. THUMBS UP!
